OK, I can understand that rationale. Thank you for explaining.

(There does seem something not-quite-right in the fact that I
downloaded and installed the Windows version of OOo 2.1 yesterday
[with a five-year-old OS], but can't do the same with Kubuntu [with a
six-month-old OS]. I'd love to discover whether an annoying printing
problem that affects OOo in Kubuntu has been fixed.

Half an hour later... OK, I give up. I can't figure out where to file
requests (or to see what's already been requested). "Use launchpad",
it says. So I've gone around and around in Launchpad trying to find
the right combination of magic incantations to get me somewhere

Does anyone know the right URL to look at requested backports for dapper?
