 That is not only depending on the backports.org team, and would only be
possible if it really becomes official, using the official buildd
network, for a start. Your wish is sweet but won't sanely be possible
without removing your bracketed word.

 And besides, problems can happen, and do happen. Like, using Breaks
breaks the current official build infrastructure. I don't see the big
deal with not having a package right on the same day anyway. TTBOMK
there were only three packages uploaded so far.

 flashplugin-nonfree is not a too good example, you can conveniently
install it from etch-backports without any troubles. And technically
spoken it's the _only_ package that's only available through unstable
and backports.org, so there is no like at all.

 So long,
