That would be a rather large piece of work. It would be incompatible
with basically all apache modules and web-app packages in wheezy, so
those would need backporting, too. Considering that there is still
plenty of work to do in jessie, I don't think a backport will happen

If you are only looking for ECC/ECDHE, you could try this patch
http://people.apache.org/~sf/ECC-2.2-v2.diff on the wheezy package. I
think we may include it in a future wheezy point release, but I would
like it to be aproved for upstream 2.2.x, first.

Updating to jessie seems like the only sane solution right now.
