Subject: Trub

I just made a batch of beer, and this is the first time I have worried (yes,
I worried!) about letting the trub settle out. Only problem is that it took
overnight for it to all fall out, even after the wort is completely cooled.
My question is how much damage can be done by letting the stuff sit over-
night to let the trub settle out, then rack to another carboy and pitch the
yeast. I know there is a significant risk of infection, but I think I can
control for that. What risks of oxidation or other things exist, and how
much should worry about them? Does anyone know a better way than I propose?

Thanks in advance for any information!
