By "backporting" I was actually using the Debian-specific meaning of
making newer packages available for older versions of the distro. For
example, people wanting to run 1.5 in lenny, or maybe even in sarge.

This is particularly relevant right now, because unstable has just
gained support for a new source package format. I want to adopt it
thoroughly, but older versions of dpkg-source won't know how to unpack
it, so there are needs to be balanced there.
