I would not recommend the backporting. There are GCC-5 toolchain changes
that are quite huge in Testing. We also added a squid3/squid package
name transition in Squid itself.

So the things that a backport like that will pull as dependencies may
blow up into a change almost as big as a full system upgrade to Testing.

3.5 will apparently build okay on Jesse though if you follow the compile
instructions in the Squid wiki page. So the self-compile is probably better.
