I'm not sure who maintains the feisty-backports, but I don't think they
get the same level of security love as packages in feisty.
Given that adding the repository will encourage apt and friends to
upgrade everything in -backports, I would either cherry pick the debs I
want, or configure apt to treat -backports as lower priority than the
main archives.
