True. The thing is, I don't expect that to happen soon, TBH. No, I don't
have solid information, this is just a feeling. In the mean time,
debimedia could be a) an interim solution until the backports actually
reach squeeze backports, and b) a staging repository for getting quicker

I'd say let's begin with these packages. IIRC, adi mentioned the desire
to provide quicker backports of jack-ish packages as well, so this might
be a use-case as well.

I don't have any experience with wanna-build, if you volunteer to set it
up, sure, that would be probably useful!
