I have no issue with having it enabled by default, as I am aware, one 
still needs to specifically request installing a backport. But I do think 
having it inside sources.list *commented* is still better than not having 
it in there at all. Thats the whole point I was trying to make.

I wasn´t against having backports in it at all.
