Yes, that's what I did before, kept the full build in experimental and
only client in sid etc. But that's a pain to keep in sync and get tested
etc.. What I'd backport is not the exact version of what's in sid,
instead the server build would be disabled.

If that's not possible then maybe I'll postpone the backport until the
server works again... however long that'll take.
