I think the more Repos we have the better. That way if there's some software we're looking for doing a "sudo apt-get install" we'll have a better chance of finding it. I had a heck of a time getting Handbrake installed because I couldn't do a "sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk" and have in install anything. Always came back with an error so I finally just had to download it and install it using GDebi Package Installer. Yep, more Repos the better, keep the backports and add any other Debian(or even Ubuntu since it's an off shoot and a bit more cutting edge) if you like.

I think I've found a compromise. There'll be a new package called debian-backports and its installation will enable the entire backports repo, but this package won't be installed by default. PL Installer will also get three new checkboxes (unchecked by default), Compiz, Backports, Non-free repos. These checkboxes will allow you to install these packages during installation. I think it's the best solution possible.

I don't even consider it a compromise. It's more choice which benefits those fortunate enough to find and run PL (while at the same time not expanding the number of PL editions). Simple yet brilliant thinking. Thanks Peter!
