Yes. Will it b-break y-your system? Not necessarily. Make a backup first and then install it. That way if it breaks stuff, you're one click away from a working system.

You're generally pretty safe if it doesn't need to update lots of critical libraries.

To add to this, I ran Debian Sid without issue for almost 3 weeks. Then it completely broke and I installed something else.
