apt won't install newer versions from backports
unless the user explicitly specifies -t $suite-backports

Or, IIRC, unless the currently installed version came from backports already
and an upgrade is available in backports.

I don't see a problem with making backports be available by default,
as long as the user has to explicitly tell apt they want to use them.
