It does make it harder to have "automatic" backports (where that makes
sense) by doing a "dget foo.dsc; <unpack, cd into source>; dch --bpo
'recompile for stable'; debuild". In that light, it makes a lot more
sense to me than to have the dch in stable (with --bpo) default to
building for oldstable...
