Hm, it appears to be true that not every single revision is here. But there
are certainly more than just the unstable and testing revisions too:
libc6_2.2.5-11.2_i386.deb 26-Sep-2002 11:32 3.2M
libc6_2.2.5-11.5_i386.deb 08-Jun-2003 01:32 3.2M
libc6_2.3.2-9_i386.deb 26-Oct-2003 21:47 3.6M
libc6_2.3.2.ds1-8_i386.deb 30-Oct-2003 12:17 4.6M
libc6_2.3.2.ds1-9_i386.deb 02-Nov-2003 11:18 4.6M
As it turned out 2.3.2-9 was a perfectly reasonable revision to roll back to.
