Taking this entirely at face value, the escalation is quite straight
forward. If you can confirm the issue "renders package unusable" on a
fresh install of testing, then use `reportbug` to update #926253 to
"grave" severity for version 3.3.5-1.

If not, or if they disagree, then it's up to the maintainer's
discretion. Please note that the currently listed Maintainer hasn't made
an upload since 2014, and the Uploader explicitly requested in 2018 that
someone else adopt it as "I can't test the package thoroughly".
