The guidelines *also* state that you should not NMU a package which
obviously has an active maintainer.  This just wastes everyone's time
involved.  I've now had *two* people attempt to NMU one of my packages
when there was an open bug on the problem which I had responded to
already, and will deal with.

NMUers are wasteing everyone's time when they don't use common sense,
which is even explicitly requested of them in the guidelines.
