Yes.  Same will be true backporting to sarge.  But if sarge
build-essential were to be updated to contain debhelper (>= 4), that
would make less work for backporters than if this same change were made
only post-sarge.

The point is not that one *couldn't* just make the change in etch - but
that by doing it in sarge, we make life easier for the backporters.
