Backporting a recent debhelper requires backporting dpkg which I wouldn't dare do...

While I don't want to get in the dh/cdbs debate (I'm fine with either), this statement is not true. debhelper requires dpkg-dev >= 1.14.19, and stable has 1.14.29.

If limiting to backports targeted stable, I completely agree.

Yes. I don't consider supporting (or taking into account) releases older than stable worth the time of any developer (except, maybe, during the few months following a stable release).

Do you consider the "lenny" branch of backports.org part as part of "stable"?

Would you if that initiative was renamed to backports.debian.org?

I would not.

How about recompilation for e.g. latest stable release of Ubuntu. Is that "stable" too, or irrelevant?

Kind regards,
