As I probably wrote in the mentioned bug report, it seems more friendly, safe, and honest to stick to stable packages on a stable system instead of silently stuff from backports. It's not like uncommenting a line in sources.list should be a huge burden anyway (having to figure out which line to add, depending on the target suite, wasn't too trivial when backports moved from backports.d.o to the archive; but we're way past that now).
