finding previous package version
I think you can do it by editing your preferences (man apt_preferences)
You'll basically have to inform the package name, the version you wish to get back and the most delicate to set : the priority.

I recently did a large upgrade in wheezy, and now I want to downgrade a
certain package to the previous version. Is there some way to get my
hands on that previous version?
Specifically, the upgrade brought up debian bug #665004, which made my
touchpad scrolling stop working right. The bug report indicates the
culprit is the upgrade of xserver-xorg-input-synaptics from version
1.5.0-2 to 22.214.171.1241-1, and that downgrading fixes it. But I don't
know where to find the older package. The other distributions have an
even older version (1.4.x), which is maybe too old.
