I got your point. It also clarifies my statement that the
fix is unintrusive not being true and that it shouldn't go to

I doubt it should go even to backports.d.o, because if I understand
b.d.o., it is designed to contain backported packages that
should continuously track newer versions in testing. I am not interested
in having newest cdbs (or most of other software). 

I will ask on the backports list if somebody needs it, and if so, I
will backport it and try to track testing, that I think is required by

Otherwise I will keep it private and change the version to be
lesser than the eventual next updates/proposed-updates upload so I won't
miss fixes. Lintian will inform me if I accidentally loose the
backported version anyway.

Please consider the bug as resolved from my side, maybe it should stay
open to track wheezy and be tagged wontfix?

Thanks for the discussion and you patience and feel free to make what
you want with this bug as you obviously have deeper insight than me.
