Upstream CVS isn't always releasable immediately. I know I've dealt with
#168442/#177539 in upstream CVS, for instance. However, that repository
also happens to contain random other stuff which hasn't stabilized yet,
and I don't think trying to backport a complete reorganization of how
man handles locale encodings is a terribly stable thing to do. Thus, I
want to express the fact that I've dealt with the bug for the sake of my
own organization without necessarily promising to upload Real Soon Now.

(Certainly I should do more work to get man-db 2.4.2 out, but to some
extent that's a different matter.)
