I meant it in the sense of "run a script to create a backport from a
particular testing/unstable release, as opposed to changing any source
package and upload it manually to backports.org". I would very much
assume that this is what currently happens with backports.org. At
least that's how we do backports in Ubuntu, with "backport-source.py
package_name source_release".

I didn't mean "automatically move every -8.2 unstable upload to
-backports", of course.

Goes without saying.
