I have a custom package already uploaded to my web page,
but it seems to be a dangerous example.

Package: gogo
Status: install ok installed
Priority: optional
Section: non-free/sound
Installed-Size: 348
Maintainer: Oohara Yuuma <oohara@libra.interq.or.jp>
Version: 2.39b-3
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.1.2)
Description: mp3 encoder
 This is an unofficial .deb package of gogo, a LAME-based
 mp3 encoder.
 WARNING: Use only in Japan, or you will be involved in
 patent problems.

A backported-to-potato package is better?
