Not a stupid question at all.
When installing packages from other releases the main thing you have to
worry about is dependencies -- e.g. If I install package Y from
woody/unstable, will it require that I update libc, apache, bash, and/or
other things which I don't want updated from unstable?
In the case of scanlogd, it doesn't have an odd dependencies -- it'll
install smoothly into potato/frozen.
The thing to watch out for is new releases. Unstable is unstable. Since
you're not tracking woody in dselect or sources.list, you're not going to
automatically be notified if a new version or bug fix release of scanlogd
