dhelp in woody will prevent woody release?

I've been trying to upgrade my system to woody. As it stands, dhelp will 
cause a woody release to be a major embarrassment to the Debian 
distribution. Version has a bug which causes installations of 
many other packages (which install help files) to complain. 

The bug is a year old, and the maintainer doesn't answer email. One 
respondent even tracked down the dbopen call within dhelp which is 
responsible (#109207). I believe the task falls to debian-doc, since 
dhelp relies on install-docs and doc-base, to correct this problem. 

If nothing else, we could just back out to Version 0.3.23, which works 
just fine on my otherwise woody system.
