*That* is a good practical reason to have them indeed, thank you!
Tho, with a separate repository (like debian backports), you can
also do upgrade any time you prefer. You don't have that much
choice however.  And once new debian release is out, you can only
upgrade as a whole.

(btw, I think I'll continue provide current samba in bullseye-backports-sloppy
once bookworm is out, for some time anyway).

It is enabled now in debian too.  The only feature enabled by him and not enabled
by debian (yet) is elasticsearch, - I yet to see what deps it brings us.
