The package won't work unmodified anyways, since it Depends on
puredata-core, which doesn't exist until 0.43. So strictly speaking
the aid for backporting is incomplete (also, it installs into a
different dir, so that would need to be changed too).

I suggest just dropping the << 0.43 option, since it misleads into
thinking it could actually work unchanged with 0.42.

Please update the changelog. I have reviewed this and will upload
tomorrow afternoon (GMT-4, so probably past midnight in europe).
