Hi Fabian,

because it's too often not allowed/desired/practical to have testing in 
sources.list. (apt-pining can go wrong, misunderstood, etc. - also some people 
only have access to a local mirror which only caries stable + stable-backports 
etc.) - what works for some (apt-pining) doesnt work for everyone. I *never* 
have testing in my sources lists for stable systems. Why risk havoc...

Also, a backport doesnt do harm, so yay, I'd say.
