Could anyone confirm if this is correct?

   $ apt-show-versions -b | grep sarge-backports

Seems not; I definitely have more backports installed than that! e.g.,

   $ apt-cache policy gimp
     Installed: 2.2.10-1bpo1
     Candidate: 2.2.10-1bpo1
     Version Table:
        2.2.10-2 0
           100 http://http.us.debian.org unstable/main Packages
    *** 2.2.10-1bpo1 0
           125 http://www.backports.org sarge-backports/main Packages
           100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
        2.2.6-1 0
           500 http://http.us.debian.org stable/main Packages

   $ apt-show-versions -b gimp

So, it looks like some backports show up as /unstable/ here. The following command seems to work, though it catches locally-installed packages too (and anything else not from stable):

   apt-show-versions -b | grep -v '\<stable$' | cut -d/ -f1
