This is possible and we already have some ideas regarding this topic. 
Actually Roland is working on such a thing with a different prospective. 
This will mean a different concept as we have it now. Also lots of 
testing. When we have some we can inform you. Might also want to look at 
frugalware, which basically does this concept you're talking about.

Rolling releases have some downs but we try to fix them. We already 
slowed it down a little but most of the people need or like the current 
I think adding a longer testing period in testing might help to get it 
much more stable. Maybe you point me to the edges on our current concept 
and what you miss right now.
