Is this quota? It still seems to be in testing:

     quota |     1.65-4 |        stable | alpha, arm, i386, m68k,
                                          powerpc, sparc, source
     quota |     2.00-9 |       testing | alpha, arm, i386, m68k,
                                          powerpc, sparc, source
     quota |     2.00-9 |      unstable | mips, powerpc
     quota | 3.00pre01-2 |      unstable | m68k, ia64
     quota | 3.00pre01-3 |      unstable | alpha, arm, i386, sh, sparc,

I'd have assumed that it couldn't have been rolled back to an older
version if the version in testing had been upgraded at any point to
3.00pre01, since the 2.00-9 packages would then have been physically
