I fail to see how the relevancy of such fix for Wheezy.  Yes, I do see 
the relevancy for a backporting by a strict rule only allowing to 
contaminate the final system, not contaminate the build-environment with 
other backported build-dependencies - but such stric rule is then 
evidently not helping you in situations like this.  So relax that rule 
and backport CDBS - should be seemlessly backportable even to oldstable.

Hope that helps,

 - Jonas
