This is a lot ironic for me.
What about the bloat when more and more ftpmasters think my package is
important and I think it should remain standard, as it was in sarge?
See #384089 to understand what I mean. Well, this is not exactly that
they "think" it should be important, since they have not said anything
about the issue yet, but by omission, it will be if they don't act on
the bug report before the release.
I certainly support the idea that ftpmasters have a look at the bug
list for ftp.debian.org now that we have frozen etch.
