IMHO we should either have our own repositories for more up-to-date
versions of specific packages (I don't think backports is a great
solution, because you get a big blob of possibly unstable stuff you
probably don't care about having the latest versions of in addition to
stuff like latest gnash), or just incorporate them into more frequent
point releases.

I don't think we should be dependent on upstream to incorporate packages
before we use them; I'm not personally against corporation with upstream
in general, I just don't think that corporation should be a requirement
for an improvement to gnewsense.
