You can configure up2date to "skip" any application you don't want 
overwritten. So, if you were playing with one version of an application 
that wasn't in the "official distribution"  you can still use up2date 
without hosing your pet project. This is not tracking a specific 
version among many but perhaps "apt" has this capability,  I don't use 
it so I don't know.

There is another thread currently where a fellow has a problem because 
another application,  Galeon I think,  requires the Mozilla libraries 
from the version prior to the bug fix.  He has to make a choice to 
update Mozilla and in doing so, dumping Galeon or keeping Galeon and 
living with a Mozilla that easily seg faults or digging in to see what 
Galeon really needs.  What other programs use the Mozilla libs? I don't 
know, but these are the kinds of problems that will have to be 
addressed when a new version is released.
