Er... correction, when I read with both eyes open, I see that the
Thursday deadline only affects udebs that belong on the d-i initrd
images.  AFAIK, debootstrap-udeb is not included on any initrds (except
perhaps for any monolithic images being built, which don't count overly
much).  The actual deadline for non-initrd udebs in testing is 22 Oct,
which still makes for a tight schedule for exim4, but not nearly as
frantically improbable.

If the exim4 maintainers don't have for an upload to fix this library
dependency right now, I'm willing to NMU.  Also, the libgnutls11
maintainer has also been in an NMUing mood lately, and would probably be
equally as willing if he's available. :-)
