Enabling repositories only temporarily will eliminate advantage of
updates. May make sense to setup apt-pinning - try googling it, there
should be good tutorial among first few links. Alternatively, you can
go with temporary repository and then change "lenny" to "stable" in
/etc/apt/sources.list. Or indeed just upgrade to testing/Squeeze and
be done.
One possibility is to have both repositories in sources.list
and add the following in apt.conf :
APT::Default-Release "lenny";

The only drawback is that you'll have both lenny and squeeze package list download at update time.

Doing apt-pinning can really be tricky and is just not relevant most of the time.
