As I understand the point is to have zmq3 based pyzmq in wheezy and squeeze.
Don't you need to add a versioned build depend on the zmq3 backport for
Or are backports automatically built against other backports?

Thats fine with me, I doubt anyone seriously uses python2.5 anymore and
3.1 is rather useless too.

The patches look fine, but I'm not in the backports keyring either so I
can't upload (yet).
If you have a sponsor for salt, maybe he/she also can upload this for you.
If not I should probably get myself in the keyring anyway.
Thanks for passing the patches by me.
