for stuff that is not dependant on much other stuff (I have done this in the
past with potato to get modutils and other stuff from newer debian releases)
you can add an apt sources line to sources.list and apt-get source
packagename and then build the package with debuild (well it can in fact all
be done by apt but I like using seperate steps).

You then get a modwhatever compiled and working on woody (if it does not
have heinous dependancies)
