Frankly, I have no clue :-(

There are no scripts pulling stuff automatically out of sarge, that's
only done manually after checking bugreports, so just noting it there
would already have been enough.

Note that there is still a serious issue _somewhere_, and as I explained
below, it is actually a problem for illuminator, even though the _fault_
is obviously somewhere else. If now somehow illuminator is build
succesfully on arm due to sheer luck, it might propagate to testing, and
lacking this luck in the future, it might be impossible to do security
support for it. Build failures are always a problem of the failing
package (in addition to the problem-causer, of course), however annoying
that might be.
