I run woody and love its stability, I don't want to goto testing or

There are .deb packages avalible but I never use them because I am
concerned that apt-get will pull in updated libs, etc, etc and before
I know it I will be running half testing !
Is there a way of finding out if a .deb is safe to use without pulling
in loads of updates ?
Many thanks guys ... Invaluable advice as always !
