When you're cherry picking make sure you don't get a rotten apple.

If you add a package to stable from unstable check if you need
to add its prerequisite and *supported* packages too, then repeat
for any additional packages needed.  You might be able to add
parts of the package tree but please understand that it won't
always work unless a connected group is updated.  Unless you are
prepared to verify each package in the chain the group is going
to be large or unverified which nullifies your initial reasoning
of doing it for security.
