Oh joy-of-joys, a context free drive-by-CC to -devel, and a bug which indicates
an NMU without warning, DELAYED queue use or nmudiff, for a package to which
the maintainer is actively discussing the bug (not MIA), for a maintainer who
is just beginning their time with Debian and relies on support and sponsorship.
How inviting to the project!

FWIW, I (or someone else) could quite easily contrive and upload a freedoom
derivative which worked with Doomsday and upload it. It would then satisfy this
technical requirement and thus the argument would go away.  It would also be
a poor imitation of Freedoom (lack features), confusing to users and generally
be a complete waste of time.
