amarok is not in testing and anyways needs a source upload for #784448.

It is also worth looking at the around 300 (sic) currently open RC bugs
I have reported for FTBFS that were *not* caused by me [1]:

Current status quo in Debian is that it is completely normal that
a new upload of some package is followed by me filing 10-50 RC bugs
against packages that FTBFS due to that change.

So when the only rdep is one package that is not in testing and anyways 
requires a (non-trivial) sourceful upload for re-entering testing,
I fail to see any reasonable justification for me to spend additional
time on going through any process longer than just filing an RC bug.
