It's not a good idea.  While many will work, there have been concerns 
that Ubuntu packages may not be binary compatible with standard Debian 
packages.  I haven't yet heard of any positive proof of this yet, but 
do you want to be the first to find a problem like that when it effects 
something important for you?
