I have indeed used the package from testing/sid in the past on Wheezy.
My goal was to avoid making Tails' test suite setup documentation more
complicated than it already is.

Still, point taken: I do care about not overloading the backports
archive (and its maintainers!) with not-so-useful backports, so I will
handle it differently.

Thanks for the useful comments!
