Debian stable used to have that problem a lot.  The people who worked on 
debian tended to use the unstable releases so those, while being a tiny 
bit unstable, tended to be more current and much more popular while 
almost no one used debian stable.

That's a big part of the reason Ubuntu exists, to deliver more recent 
versions in stable integrations.  And I think we can all see how popular 
that has been.  (Ubuntu-9.10 includes an optional python-3.1).
