I recently asked the same question. Jerry answered... I think specifically for the Etch part of the question:

I would definitely like to see Samba team packages for the current Ubuntu stable version, which currently is indeed 7.04. (hint! hint! ;-)

Debian, and I am getting the idea Ubuntu too, keep their Samba builds patched as far as security updates. So for Debian Sarge went stable with 3.0.14 I think, and that is what it always was... just 
with security patches. I did not pay attention to the debian.org packages as I always fetch Simo's from samba.org.

With all due respect for the package maintainers of the Debian and Ubuntu distros... I sort of wish there would be a way of getting "official packages" of the current build verses some custom 
concoction (security updates only). (shrug) I certainly do not seem to be the person to "make that happen".
