Yes, I'm planning on adding a one-time popup information for
ubuntustudio-controls to be run at login, but that will only be helping
those who already have it installed (which all Ubuntu Studio users will
have, unless they uninstalled it).

Since Ubuntu users aren't used to backports for their multimedia
applications, it's important that they know the risks, and that they can
deselect backports.

We should spread this information quite soon on our web site and social
channels, as well as the user mail list.
