Looks good.  Shall I delete the current wheezy-backports-sloppy branch
from the Alioth repo?

I don't find this very useful, since that change is described in the
previous entry, but it won't hurt.

Entries going back to the previous backport used to be required, but the
backports people don't enforce this anymore.  I include them if I don't
forget adding in the extra option.  Does not seem to matter.

I suspect 1.7.2-2~bpo70+1 wasn't released from the repository, but
created "on the fly" via Russ' backport script.  If so, there's nothing
to tag.  Interestingly, I can't find the upload itself on the tracker.
