In case you're still looking for a solution, and disclaimer: this is
from memory as I use Ubuntu now, you can temporarily add the unstable
repositories into your apt sources list, and use `apt-get install -t
unstable cython` to just get that version. It will, I believe, pull in
any dependencies from the unstable distribution that it requires as
well, but not generally upgrade the system. Then I've commented the
unstable repositories out again to ensure that I don't pull in any
more unstable packages than I need in subsequent operations.
