The earlier, the better, I believe.

I'd like to try harder on this one, be it with 6.10 or
6.11+something. Looks like non-trivial, but possible, provided
upstream is responsive. Will look into it.

I'll probably concentrate on those, and on RC bugfixes that prevent
packages to be built, i.e. FTBFS that appear on every arch.
