I think it's definitely appropriate.  FWIW, I've just recently moved aboot
maintenance from CVS to bzr as part of my formal adoption of it; I'd welcome
you to branch off of
http://bzr.debian.org/bzr/pkg-aboot/aboot/tags/release_0_9b-3 and give me a
URL that I can merge from to an etch branch.

Knowing the nature of the failure and fix, I'm confident that your testing
is sufficient, provided that the patch is the same one applied in lenny.
