Having a package that changes behavior in the Stable version of Debian
shall NEVER happen. If so, then you can file a bug in the tracker. But I
never saw this happening over the last 5 years.

We simply use approx to do package download caching. This is really
enough, no need to manually create your own set of package. You are
being over paranoid here.
