It's not possible to remove individual binaries from testing directly. Nor
would it be appropriate, when the binary would just be introduced by any
rebuilds (such as for a security update).
As for letting it in, I'm cc:ing the d-i RM for approval.

These removals are handled periodically by the ftp team; I've hinted that
this might be a good one to process sooner rather than later.
