ok, i guess when people said, supported, i immediately assumed full support. 
that kind of misled me.

tested by QA, ok. but we still can't guarantee that it won't be installable 
without error, or even that update might not be installable due to an 
installed backport.

In any case, not something i'll recommend to people, and as such, i don't 
think there's a need for mgaapplet to handle backport functionality either.
