why is Ardour pretty outdated in stable and not in testing?

But that doesn't really solve the problem imo. The problem is solved 
when Ardour in unstable hit testing and then stable after a while. Now 
it seems to be stuck in unstable...

Also the backport is an 64studio repo, people expect Lenny backports to 
be in the Lenny backports...
