trouble getting apt-pinning to work

I'm on debian stable (squeeze), but would like to be able to install a
few packages from testing (wheezy). I tried to set up apt pinning, but
it doesn't seem to work quite right. When I apt-get install something
now, it all comes from wheezy even if there are squeeze versions of
the package. It's almost like the preferences file isn't getting read.

Is there anything wrong with the configuration below? Is there any way
to get apt to spit out it's internal model of the priorities so I can
verify that everything is actually getting loaded?


Package: *
Pin: release a=squeeze
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release a=wheezy
Pin-Priority: 650


# Debian packages for squeeze

# Wheezy
