Upgrade Just By Changing Repositories?


Okay, I know this sounds like a newbie question, but here's why I'm asking:

Xubuntu 9.10 is awesome, fast, and perfect on my 'puter. The latest version is very slow, troublesome, and very resource hungry.

When 9.10 reaches "end of life," why can't I just edit my software sources list to "Lucid" instead of "Karmic," rather than upgrade and have my poor 'puter slowed down by all that buggy Plymouth and PulseAudio stuff they put in 10.04?

I would seriously rather run 9.10 unsupported (and fast) than a supported version that makes my poor old hand-me-down 'puter slow to a crawl.
