Definitely. I am sorry for causing this!
I did try to test for breakage, but I guess I misinterpreted the salsa
CI runner, or it did not check properly. So I uploaded thinking there
was not going to be breakage.
Also, it would be great if upstream did not do these kind of breaking
changes without the equivalent of a soname change..

We have ratt, but that requires sbuild, so I ended up never using it.
