You might say, "If you're going to be running sid, it's a good idea to
know how to install the previous version of a package." Which is
exactly what the OP is trying to learn.
But you know, I ran sid for years without knowing how to do this, and I
survived. The more b0rked a package is, the faster it usually gets
fixed. Often, the bug is in a configuration file or whatnot, so an
experienced linux weenie can fix the problem without having to downgrade
