UI for backports usage

Hello everybody,

I had some discussions with John Dong and João Pinto and both
acknowledged the fact that there's a need for installing just a select
few backport packages and not all of them.

Let's imagine that somebody has an interest in just the latest version
of blender on his stable system. That user does not want to upgrade to
all packages available in the backports repository, but just the
backported version of blender.

How could something like this be realised in a user-friendly way?

Have a nice day,
