To do what you're trying to do, you'll need a newer apt, probably the
one from Woody, and you'll need to set up an apt preferences file that
pins the various distros at different priorities, add unstable (and
maybe Woody to sources.list, upgrade and then install.  It may just be
easier to get the source code from debian.org and build it yourself.
Just take a look at the dependencies before hand to see what else you
need to pull off the site.
