Is there any idea of the number of packages actually affected by this?
I've harly seen an RC bug flood arise out of this; I've only seen two,
one of which is already pending upload. Probably a few more will arise,
but the fix is trivial.

So I wonder if it would be useful to revert the change, since we have to
change at some point and at this point the effects do not seem to be
quite dramatic. Maybe you have signs indicating otherwise?
