Sure, but that applies equally well to anything within Debian. If, e.g.,
aj or james get hit by a bus, we'll have a serious problem. And that's
even a bigger thread, given the fact that james and aj do things not
many other people do and which likely requires some training and
experience to do it right, whereas rebuilding and filing bugs is done by
quite a few people, and only requires the motivation to do it.

This argument hits no ground, sorry.
