utility to downgrade a package with its dependencies?

For Debian/unstable:

Does there exist a utility to downgrade a package with its
dependencies and reverse-dependencies? The old packages would
be taken from /var/cache/apt/archives, and the tool should be
able to find automatically which packages/versions are needed
to satisfy all the dependencies (with minimum change) and
should be able to handle virtual packages.

Doing that manually is tedious...
