but isn't this a bug? just like nonfree/tainted... etc...

code to detect what you had and use it for next upgrade, would be good. but 
that would not be easy, unless we just keep it simple and fallback if people 
don't have a standard layout.

In any case,

Stormi: what is your suggestion to change in the backport policy? or do you 
think we can keep it, but we'd need alot more effort for some "features"?
