  It could be that simple at the beginning, yes, but as new versions are
  released and the development of sid continues towards next stable the
  dependencies tend to diverge. New ones appear, others get removed, and you
  may have to maintain other backported packages so the main package can be
  installed in a stable+backports system. And of course you have to maintain
  systems to be able to build all those packages. In fact it's still simple,
  but as it evolves, it just requires more and more time.
