Hopefully a Debian packages would be of better than beta quality.  Even 
testing and unstable don't get beta packages often because packages put into 
the unstable->testing->stable cycle need to be candidates for a Debian 
release.  Upstream generally won't provide the needed assistance if the 
package is based on a beta tarball.

Depending on how much time and effort the maintainer(s) for a certain 
package want to put into it, you may be able to find packages based off of 
nightly/snapshot/alpha/beta/unreleased versions from upstream.

There are plenty of bugs to find in unstable/testing.  If you think you've 
found them all, help with triage and resolution.
