backport 1.19

I finally got a chance to overhaul my backporting helper script to add support for lenny. The new version bases the default chroot basepath on the target distribution, chooses the right version suffix for based on the distribution, and tweaks a few other things. One should be able to use it for both stable and oldstable backports, although I've not tested it all that thoroughly yet.

The default target is now lenny. There are, as yet, no transforms applied for lenny backports, but I'll be adding them as I run into necessary changes for the packages that I backport.

You can get the latest version from my scripts page.
