I agree with you; however this particular point should not be a reason
for rejecting a package.  It is clearly something that has to be
synchronized with upstream, and it not of such severity that the package
couldn't be accepted without such an upstream change.  Especially if one
notices that there won't be a new upstream release until autumn 2006.
