Updating from Squeeze to Wheezy

Hi, List :-)

I have been holding fire in changing my desktop from my nice stable TDE on 
Squeeze until TDE for Wheezy sounded less dicey.  I then delayed further when 
it recently stabilised because I had too much else going on in my life, and 
as I said, my system is great.  I love TDE

But the time has come to upgrade.  Other things have simmered down a bit, 
anyhow temporarily, so the time has come.

In the past, I have always reinstalled.  This time I want to try upgrading.  
When I edit my sources.list, I assume that I change the word squeeze to 
wheezy in my TDE repositories too?  (Including Slávek's.)  And that I just do 
a standard Debian update, dist-upgrade?  (Yes, I have read the release notes.  
And yes, I shall make sure that I have got at least two backups of my data in 
at least two different places.)

All advice and tips welcome.  "Just go ahead"s perhaps even more welcome!
