It could be removed again, but only if someone finds out that it's broken
*before* we release.  There is a very small window for this to happen,
because packages don't get widespread testing while they're in
testing-proposed-updates, so the only testing that will happen will be
between the time the package is pushed into testing (once it's built
everywhere it needs to be) and the release date.  With the delays in getting
t-p-u built across architectures, that's not long enough for me to be
