How do you say "this bug is important enough to be fixed for frozen"?
Often, for instance, there are times when a really simple bug causes a
package to break seriously for some users. While the package should
not get dropped if it isn't fixed in time, it still looks bad for
Debian as a whole if this stuff gets released.
