No -- and a simple way of getting selected packages from Debian
up-to-date on Ubuntu is to
a) add a deb-src entry to /etc/apt/sources.list that points
to Debian unstable (or testing)
b) apt-get update && apt-get source $packageYouWant
c) make the changes you need to make, it any
d) rebuild, eg via 'dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -tc -rfakeroot'
which is what I don on the Ubuntu machines at work.
Steps b) to d) can be combined by adding --compile to the apt-get
source invocation, but I like to at least mark the local build in the
changelog / version number.
Hope this helps,
