Neither is the case with kaffeine in mind. It's not a lib, dependencies are
not too tight, and it's already recompiled for c2a in Sid and could be pushed
to testing with the rest of whatever when that's due.
And I seriously hope they do not remove packages because of one unconfirmed
bug with status grave (#336306).
Anyway, I hereby ask the maintainer for the reason of the removal and after
all, _he_ should know.
I'd like to have some insight about the decisions that lead to package removal
far before a new version drops down and even farther from a release.
