Installation instructions for Debian

I think there is a small mistake in the installation instruction for
Debian, sorry about that: the "Pin-Priority" should be set to 150 instead
Long explanation: on jessie, the jessie-backports repository also has a
priority of 200. After enabling unstable with the same priority, APT will
propose to upgrade all packages from jessie-backports to unstable, which
is probably not wanted nor expected.
Daniel, does that all make sense?
