You can run most extensions with a little judicious hacking - just
change the version check line in the extension - or install the
extension developer (nightly test?) extension

Yes - it's more like one person than a team though.

This might help:-
# wget -O- -q http://mozilla.debian.net/archive.asc | gpg --import
deb http://mozilla.debian.net/ squeeze-backports iceweasel-release
# enable for icedove
# apt-get install -t squeeze-backports icedove
#deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main
I run Iceweasel 5.0, Icedove 3.1.1 on my Squeeze boxes
NOTE: you don't say which Debian release you are running.
