It was part of the problem & used to show that it was not that easy to do

So here we've got some problems:
- Backports are not functional.
- Kde is still too big for a backport especially regarding our current
(draft) backport policy where it should be validated by our QA. Not to
mention that we'll have to update/backport somes dependencies to allow this.
- I personally won't push it to backport.
