No objection, thanks.

Just to be on the safe side, I've built a netboot-gtk image against
unstable's udebs and run a few installation and rescue tests, using
various languages and I haven't noticed anything worrisome.

And since I was wondering what the change was for the German debconf
template, running `d` told me the package has migrated already, and
it was indeed already unblock(-udeb)'ed…

Having udeb-producing packages change under our feet when we're in
the middle of unentangling the rendering mess isn't exactly nice…
