Sure, that's a fine backport, which didn't make it due to some obscure
(and probably bening) issues only.  It's a pity, but at least you
provided it to any interested parties.

Yes, #debian-backports confirmed that wheezy-backports-sloppy is no
more.  It isn't too obvious, as it's still present in the package
tracker and the archives are accessible everywhere.

Anyway, I'm happy to host the patched backports in the packaging
repository, even under the debian namespace if you wish.  Not so sure
about the tags, those are used for actual uploads...  Maybe with an
added notice stating the lack of uploads?
