Hi i'm new on the list, but a long user of great backport.org.
i would also have voted against this policy, unless etch will be 
security-maintained for some years.

I have one laptop that cannot upgrade to lenny (due to nvidia drivers), 
so i think of "legacy-port" etch kernels + Xnvidia to lenny, this would be 
much more secure than an unmaintained distro.

Any opinion/advice/hint about this is welcome.
