I'd know this would come.  doogie, you have my full sympathies and
I've been aware of this situation.  However, using this as an argument
for dpkg's status is just plain wrong.  I remind people of Bug
#212796.  RC bug filed on 26 Sep, breaking other packages to build
from source.  Joey Hess threatended to NMU dpkg on 30 Sep because
there was no response; on 8 Oct Joey Hess said doogie promised "soon".
Upload: 25 Oct.  One month for a RC bug breaking other packages...
