Its not always that black and white.

For instance (and I haven't checked in this case) maybe the version in
stable is OK...

This is something I don't like about build-depends, if a broken version
of a library appears in unstable, then people will set the build-depends
to require the fixed version (or greator), when the version of the
library in stable never had any problems to start off with.
