Ah OK. You already mentioned that you can only install major versions
this way and not different point releases, but unfortunately I need
Emacs 23.2... I guess I could install the 'emacs' from oldstable and
compile 23.4 by hand (which is the version from current stable).

Well, I was surprised to see that compiling Emacs 23.2 is already a
problem, given that it was released in 2010, which isn't *that* old, and
Debian isn't exactly what one would call a bleeding edge distribution.
