You didn't have to go back "to the dark side" just for that. Just point your repos at LATEST and wait for Update Pack 4! The WHOLE idea of introducing the Update Pack mirrors was to "buffer" end users from all such turmoil whilst still giving the 'essence' of a rolling release.
On some systems I use them, on some I don't , but, they have achieved exactly what was intended. If you need/want certain apps beyond the UP delays (eg Firefox), then 'apt pinning' Unstable/Sid on top of Latest is the way to go.
Seriously, LMDE has become a rock solid, stable as you like, doddle of a 'rolling' release to use! Would expect nothing less from Clem.
