Then why don't you just unistall the development package via the 'control
panel' and install the stable release you want. 

Mixing distributions is something very dangerous, something that release
managers and developers themselves rarely do (unless they know exaclty
what source code they are reintroducing and for what reason). And even
then the current sources are simply patched with the previous solution
and 'upgraded' again. 

... and if that was you, I doubt that you would be asking us this
question ;-)

PS. I rarely see 'downgrading' except on M$ systems
