Yeah, I'm aware of this, but wouldn't a upload to jessie-backports be

I see, missed this..

I think, I would prefer a upload to jessie-backports, via a patched 1.5
or a "vanilla" 1.6. I guess, this is too much hassle, because this would
need aswell a backport of openssl, right? If this is the case (not sure
what the openssl people think about backporting), I would take a version
from testing or experimental. Again, for me it doesn't matter if it's
1.5 or 1.6, because wouldn't use this in production.
