I mean that ofxstatemnt should be installable in future cause it's
python app. There is another point, that most people have
stable+backports in sources.list, not stable+backports+testing+sid, so
even if package could be installed from testing, some users will have
problems with this.

OK, since you (or Alexander?) accepted the package, I will support it in
backports, that's not a problem for me.
