Maybe I misunderstand you, but I'm not talking about a situation where the
stable version is greater than the unstable version. I'm talking about the
common situation where a package in stable is newer (of a more recent
date) than the unstable one.

On the 1st of June I upload 1.2-1 to unstable. The 'current' changelog is
now the changelog for 1.2-1.
Stable has 0.9-2. On the 7th of June I upload version 0.9-2+etch1 to
stable. The 'current' changelog is now the one from 0.9-2+etch1.
