Post package downgrade (Debian)

Hi all,i got some trouble on my laptop trying to install the webkit/gtk engine,i now use gnome and i got the debian/testing distribution,the mistake was:i attempt both two different ways to get webkit on my pc,via apt and,compiling the source,for the one i did part of it setting the apt-pinning,i added the unstable and experimental repos,to be able to install those libraries which are in these repository,meanwhile i was also trynig to compile,for the moment just running the ./configure script.Of course the dependency are the same so i got no problem until the configure tried to find libsoup on pkg version,beacuse to compile it i have to hve installed the version libsoup2.4-1,i already got it,but i still need the -dev package as for the other dependencies,so i just can't install the dev package beacause before i installed libsoup2.4-1 from the experimental repo and if i try to unistall it all the system seems to depend on it,i just want a downgrade..thanks
