Bug#692155: Please

Hi dear CTTE members, hi Adrian,

a) that I have (possibly wrongly) interpreted Adrian's #668662#105 [0] as
   offensive (and therefor took it too personally);
b) that I have therefor over-reacted in #668662#118 [1], including a call to
   appeal to the tech-ctte, probably unneeded;
c) that I have intially fixed #668662 by cherry-picking the fix released in
   experimental (so that the claimed mis-fix is arguably a genuine overlook);
d) that no-one has reported an actual bug revealed by the weak dependency in
   the 1.5.3-2.4 version;
e) that I still think that the way #668662 was fixed in 1.5.3-2.4 will not let
   actual bugs slip through (because there are no new features planned in
   wheezy, and I don't expect security fixes to alter the internal symbols
f) that the vast majority of library depencies are handled with ">="
   dependencies despite no technical guarantees of ABI stability (besides
   Debian-specific symbol tracking);
g) that, to my knowledge, too-tight dependencies hurt upgrade paths;
h) … but that, arguably, the handling of private symbols in cups as shipped in
   1.5.3-2.4 is weak;
h) that there are more important things in Debian to work on these days (like
   releasing Wheezy for example);

I have therefor uploaded 1.5.3-2.5, with the attached debdiff, implementing 
the fix required by Adrian, to DELAYED/5 (to let the currently unblocked 
1.5.3-2.4 migrate to Wheezy). I don't plan to request an unblock for it.

Now, as I already wrote, "I will be happy to have my judgment challenged." 
That's still true, so I'll let the either the tech-ctte or the bugreporter 
further handle this bug if considered necessary: I don't feel like closing it
