I hope not. Time will tell.
So far I have backported pixman, cairo, poppler, evince and glib2.0, and
am currently fighting with gtk2.0 (takes a long time and failed multiple
times due to lack of disk space in my backport chroot).

Yes, I found out yesterday and released a new packaging version of
sugar-0.86 which is now backported as well.
...and doing that I noticed that the old backport was not up-to-date, so
probably the other backported Sugar parts also could use an update.

I dropped those and rely on the python-gnome2 fallback denṕendency for
now. I might try again when python-gnome2-desktop has been backported,
if it turns out to be a big benefit with only using python-gconf.
