A decent backport available from a logical place would be most
convenient indeed. So far I was unable to build it with gpg
verification. Also it's not a single .deb but a set of seven, which
must be installed with dpkg. Package managers like apt-get, gdebi,
Synaptic will pull 0.43 core, gui etcetera as puredata dependencies
when you're on wheezy. This could probably be solved by editing
dependency specs in debian/control, but still it would be confusing to
have those .debs on the apt.puredata.info/releases list, since many
people download from there manually. Maybe if there would be something
like apt.puredata.info/backports/raspbian_wheezy?

There's no wheezy-backports in the Raspbian archive (due to lack of
human resources). Raspbian maintainers try to stay close to wheezy but
pull in from sid or make their own modifications if necessary
(see:http://elinux.org/Raspbian). This brings me to another idea: if
we (I mean Pd community) verify that puredata 0.46.2 is to be
preferred over 0.43 for Raspberry Pi, they could pull in puredata
0.46.2 for wheezy. In the meantime could upload my unofficial backport
somewhere to facilitate testing.
