Hi, [currently at a congress, hence not very on top of Debian things]

This is the sensible thing to do, and one I should have done ages ago, but evaluating the impact on rdeps/build-rdeps is far from trivial, so this is not a change to be acted too lightly -- and one of the reasons why I refrained from doing so, mostly because I didn't have the time to look. > Hence I think uploading the current changes would be a good idea and I > will attach a patch for #566901 soon. I don't have the time to review the patch right now. I can have a look this week-end, if you want more eyes, but if you feel confident about the current state, I don't mind an upload as-is.
