No, backports aren't always sufficient, but when the GetDeb packages
would be in it, it would be much better, and I think your web UI has
some merit too.

That's why I proposed to create a similar web UI on top of the official
repositories, and put your packages there.  It would instantly solve all
your bandwidth issues too...  :-)
