It is not your responsibility to fix all of upstream's bugs, but it *is*
your responsibility to protect Debian users from upstream breakage as
much as possible.  This upstream change makes no sense from a usability
standpoint; this new stunnel package would be pretty useless to me, and
I wouldn't want to have it automatically installed on my systems if I
were using the previous, working version.  By the time a debconf note is
sent, it's too late.
