if I were to prepare such a package, I'd want to base it on 5.2.13. And
of course I'd want it have all the applicable improvements that the
current packages with version 7.0.5+dfsg-4 have seen. That would mean
reevaluating the ~70 changes I commited in the meantime.

Then I'd have to keep supporting it, probably until 2020 (end of
possible jessie LTS).

I would prefer to prepare packages for 7.x for jessie-backports, which
would solve the problem from another angle.
