Hi Bernhard--

Thanks for preparing these packages!

Some notes about being backport-friendly:

lenny-backports was discontinued today, so the only backporting would 
need to be to squeeze.  But squeeze has debhelper 8.0.0 already, so in 
the future there's no need to downgrade compatability to anything below 
8 for the sake of backporting.

(also, the backports folks do a pretty good job of keeping debhelper 
itself backported, and it's considered reasonable to build-depend on the 
backported debhelper if you need it)

Thanks for thinking about backportability; it's useful for lots of 
people who are using debian stable.
