That should be fixed, then. It's still essential, but does
not pre-depend (since I didn't understand why it needed to be;
I really need to re-read the dpkg manual one of these days).

I'd prefer not to upload a package this important unless I can
be sure it works well, and I can't afford to do the required
testing (which is why I don't wish to become the maintainer).
If I break something, I'd have to spend some more time to fix
things.
