This won't be an option since now I moved the code already to
non-us.debian.org. And after that was sucessfully done, I'm working on
integrate more crypto, especially support for other hash algorithmens.
So that wouldn't allow me an upload to master in the future and therefor
I don't see why I should remove the dependency. Instead I would prefer
then to drop the whole code, which introduced that and reduce the
features in dput, so that some of the features will only be available to
me and only a small subset available to other people. I know this would
be a step back, but that way no one can be feel more annoyed about any
change that I make on the dput package, it's code (except needed
bugfixes) or new features.
