It was checking for uses of "$package/$suite-backports" which is a
syntax supported by apt (and hence d-i) for installing things from the
non-default suite.

I think that functionality isn't actually used any more, because it
didn't actually work in the d-i context (I've forgotten why) and so we
do it via a late_command now instead (later in this patch).

So I think I should ditch that whole bit.
