Already unblocked by Luk.

These changes include a bump to the debhelper compat level with no apparent
rationale, in addition to the extensive upstream changes; I'm not
comfortable unblocking this (and it hardly seems I would have a chance to
anyway, we're already at version 1.4.15 in unstable now). It sounds like
any differences between the two versions are already worked around, so that
this shouldn't be an issue for d-i?
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
