No, the reason for insisting on a t-p-u upload was that the *template*
change was inappropriate because it was a regression for users of several
languages (Dutch, Danish, Italian, Galician, Swedish, Brazilian Portuguese,
Japanese, Basque, Czech, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and German). That's
the one change from the unstable version that I'm *not* willing to accept,
so it definitely shouldn't be uploaded to t-p-u!
If you do get a complete set of translations, then the package can be
unblocked from unstable once those are all uploaded. Otherwise, the RC bug
still needs to be fixed via t-p-u without the template changes.
