And I'm the person who filed the bug, and I'm not satisfied that it is
dealt with. My apologies for hauling this onto debian-devel now, but this
feels like the pine bug, where the maintainer is ignoring what the
reporter believes to be a legitimate problem. If you never want to deal
with it, leave it in the bug system (I believe I tagged it as priority
wishlist, and will happily do so if such is not the case). That won't
prevent someone else from dealing with it if they want to.

Yes, I know. However, I'm a maintainer and a programmer. The average
Debian user may not.
