Thing is, we as dput authors would be perfectly fine to backport dput-ng
to Squeeze. It's not a big problem from our perspective.

On the other hand it is a problem to comply with the Debian Backports
policy, which essentially require that a backport is not newer than the
version in Testing. Now, as we are in a freeze there won't be dput-ng in
Testing anytime soon.

We may be able to provide an out-of-tree backport on a private
repository, but I don't see many chances to get it into Squeeze.

We may, however, surely provide a backport for Wheezy once it is released.
