Well, why not put those packages into ubuntu backports repositories
instead (or at least a PPA)?  If there are any issues preventing you
from doing so, it might be interesting to hear them.

And, related to that, have you thought about turning the GetDeb site
into a user-friendly UI for the backports repository, making things
easier for people who want new versions without adding the backports
repository and possibly having to pin certain versions of other
packages, etc., etc.
