Ok, thanks for this clarification.  I didn't realize this dependency had not
yet made it into testing.

FWIW, from reading the bug log, it was not clear to me that you were taking
responsibility for this bug and stating that it had been fixed in systemd

I would suggest that a little more verbosity here might have spared us all a
bit of angst.
