I believe I do.  Backports are for recompilations of unstable packages
for the stable releases.  Hence, that's why it seems like a good

of criteria, but I suppose it would also be a good solution if its

I just realized that clamav actually went into volatile, and it was
flasplugin-nonfree that went to backports.  Anyway those two show the
two roads already traveled.  It's a matter of debating the best one
for this case.

Honestly, the ideal solution would be for either backports or volatile
to become officially supported (which from what I can tell has been in

official, there would be no need for both.
