ah, ok. 

then I'd like to suggest *not* to call it jessie+half, as we have used
that term already (for etch+half) and there we had a frozen/stable kernel,
not a moving target like bpo.

maybe "jessie+bpo-installer" would be a better fit?

and maybe, we could also do such releases more regularily (if this works
out and turns out not to be that much extra work…)
