Sure! It was not my intention to make it sound like you closed it w/o
reason; given the comment on the previous paragraph stating that I
didn't reply to the bug report, I thought that would be clear. I guess
not. :)

I agree that coming up with a working solution that works for everyone
would be perfect. The comment about the bug being closed again was only
referring to the possibility that you, as the maintainer, could not be
convinced, which would be completely respectable, and in such case
because we'd still disagree there's other options for us; removing the
packages, switching to something else, or keep forking them locally to
remove the dependency, but if Bernhard is willing to maintain such
fork inside or outside Debian, then all the better. OTOH taking this
for example to the tech-ctte would *not* be an option, because I've
never considered that to be a reasonable solution to anything.

I'll follow up on the acpi-support bug report.
