Once Jim has it added to LBM, I guess we're gonna have to whack on the
packaging so that multiple binary debs are produced, one for each major
backported subsystem. I'm pretty sure folks won't be interested in
installing compat-wireless just to pick up a video cam driver. We sort
of need to do this anyway if we ever backport ALSA to Intrepid.
