You can do the same thing with Unstable; just add "unstable" entries
to your /etc/apt/souces.list and add a "preferences" file that says
you prefer to get everything from "testing" or "stable" or whatever.
Then if you want something from Unstable, just say "apt-get install

Unstable is more stable than unsafe, btw ;)
