(jftr) ...yet; it's on my todo, but that will be not on *.debian.org
anyway, so of not much interest anyway i guess.

however, fortunately, lb can use different d-i distribution independent
from what is used for the chroot, and since wheezy d-i can install
squashfs images from squeeze (and even vice verse, which is
exceptionally nice), one could build a squeeze + backports based image
with wheezy d-i. it might need the one or other tweak along the line,
but should be relatively straight forward.
