Sorry - won't do that extra work:
* Either a few helper tools needs to be backported (like I've done
at http://debian.jones.dk/pkg/src ) or packages needs to be
adjusted to use older versions of those helper tools (and tested
that it does not cause regressions!)
* Backported icecast2 links against backportet libshout. I believe
bpo does not allow linking against anything but Etch libraries
I fail to see how packages backported and signed by the package
maintainer is any worse that bpo (yes, I compile inside chroot but as
