Well I still disagree. This means that it would be possible to get the
package back into testing by just removing the Build-Depends line. This is
not how it was meant to be.

Anyway, it seems the autobuilders weren't the one finding the bug or else
the package should have never made it into testing. I take it autobuilding
is done as soon as the original upload is done, isn't it.
