Unfortunately, the old version I have on my machine is actually
older than buster and not installable in buster. Thus a compatible
version should be created first. Something like that was done in
the past.

BTW, I think that "unison" should just be a metapackage depending
on unison-debian<x>, where <x> is the Debian version (with adapted
paths and executable names). That way, users could install both
Unison from stable and from testing/unstable (unison just depends
on libc6, so that this should be OK in practice). This may make
things easier for unison-all.
