I did the same question recently and just tried it. Backport actually
change a parent version from which you track changes. It seems that is
useful if you change repositories often or (as I use it) to publish
first on local cache, test it, then backport to last SqueakSource
version and then finally publish new version there. It is similar to
Reconcile with a database on VW's Store.
