thanks, it's good that people who hit the problem and look at BTS will
see this.

I just used debootstrap to install debian unstable and added

schroot -c sid -p -q -- "$@"

as /usr/local/bin/sid so that normal users can run unstable programs
simply by prefixing the command with "sid " (/home is bind mounted
inside the chroot so this is all totally transparent to them). This
works even with mozplugger that embeds evince window inside iceweasel

(Just for the record the /etc/mozpluggerrc entry is

application/pdf:pdf:PDF file
application/x-pdf:pdf:PDF file
text/pdf:pdf:PDF file
text/x-pdf:pdf:PDF file
       repeat noisy swallow(evince) fill: sid evince "$file"

best regards,
