Because etch is now frozen, most packages in sid will never make it
into etch. A few months ago you could have changed your sources.list to
point to etch and allowed the repository to "catch up" with you, but
I'm afraid it is too late now.
As pointed out elsewhere, downgrading is not supported. If you want
etch, I would start with a new install.
