It's currently not possible to upgrade from Essex (which is
in Wheezy) to Grizzly (which is currently in Experimental).
You need to upgrade through Folsom first. At least, that
is the current upstream status, I'll have to find a solution.

Well, I'd like to run a backport for Wheezy only, I don't
want to have it in sid+jessie. Currently, I can't do that.

I agree. I tried to explain that to upstream, but no luck so far...
There's not much I can do, especially with a project of that size.

Distributions like Ubuntu and Debian have the same pb though.
Probably RedHat too.
