Personally, I would prefer the back-ports. They have been configured for
Squeeze and run well. They have been "designed" to be OK with a Squeeze
system. It is easy to use a particular backport and leave the rest of your
system alone. So far, I have not had problems with backports, but they are
not as fully tested and maintained as Stable itself.
You have probably already seen this, but in case you haven't:
Mixed systems work well for many people, but are harder to administer. And
you may have dependency problems. Though again, you can use pinning etc. to
restrict things from Wheezy to being used only when you ask for them.
