Actually with the exception of a small amount of packages we don't have
any violation of the rule that lenny-backports only contains versions of
packages smaller than squeeze, so there is nothing to take care of if
you only use lenny + lenny-backports and want to upgrade to squeeze.
For the record, the three packages that are newer than in squeeze are:
duplicity, libdatetime-format-flexible-perl, libdatetimex-easy-perl.

Yes, this should do exactly what you want. :)
