Re: backports tool

Honnestly, it seems difficult and dangerous to automate that way.

when you backport a package there are plenty of reasons you should take care 
of dependencies, in particular when there's a major upgrade at some point.

It is often the case that you better downgrade some package's build dependency 
than automatically download and compile the latest version.

My though in your case would be that you better setup a sid chroot with 
automated tools like debootstrap and then try your applications without 
having the risk to break the system as a whole..
