A followup question that I've not been able to find an answer to (but
is implied by the components documentation[1]) is what software,
exactly, is covered by the LTS umbrella?  Since Main and Restricted
are enabled by default out of the box, I am assuming that these
repositories will receive the 3 years of support.  Are Universe and/or
Multiverse for Dapper covered as well?

I am assuming that Multiverse will not be covered, but I don't feel
comfortable making an assumption when it comes to Universe.
