development branch meaning we'd have to upgrade to Hoary for those
updated packages?

Would it be possible to just select some updated packages but keep
your ubuntu system warty? I mean like using firefox 1.0 package from
hoary, in warty? Unless they are very incompatible with each other,
that would seem like the perfect solution for me... Only updating
certain selected packages. There might already be a way to do this,
but I don't know of one, since I'm pretty much a linux n00b.
