This is what I am talking about. In this case I'd want to give
explicit permission, not just let APT take something from
backports.org that I didn't previously "authorise" for installation.

Otherwise people may fall prey to errors like I just did: installed
/etc/apt/preferences to /etc/preferences with FAI and consequently
had to reinstall all our cluster machines, because I surely don't
want *all* backported packages to replace the sarge packages.
