Re: how to install just one package from some other distro (like woody)?

Put something like this on your /etc/apt/preferences file. (this example
is for having stable, but geting things from testing)

Package: *
Pin: release testing
Package: *
Pin: release *
Pin-Priority: -1

The, add the extra lines on your source.list to also fetch testing
lists, and then just "apt-get -t testing install foo"
