Right, I was talking about my own problem of having in sid an up-to-date
package. About backports.d.o, consider that waiting for testing migration
for backporting in many cases is already too long. We had Qgis stalled
for months out of testing in the past due to the long chain of dependencies.
I'm not sure at all that four months are enogh to ensure proper packaging,
testing migration of the whole package set and backporting. Too bad.
