[ic] Interchange on Debian

Since Redhat moved to the Fedora development model, we have been looking 
to switch to a distribution with a slightly longer support period, and 
after much deliberation we have decided to give Debian ago.

I've set up a dev server with Sarge (because it looks like it is likely 
to go stable in the next few weeks) and am slowly becoming acclimitised 
to the Debian way of doing things. However I am still getting to grips 
with apt (devoted yum user) and in particular I can't work out how to 
get interchange 5.2.0 installed from unstable. At the moment I have 
resorted to downloading the deb files and installing them with dpkg but 
I kind of feel that I'm working around the problem rather than fixing 
it. The Interchange directory layout feels pretty alien too when 
compared to the Redhat RPMs.

Can anyone give me some best practice tips on using and managing 
interchange in a Debian environment?
