Who told you that? "Soon" in conjunction with the Hurd is to be taken
with a grain of salt.

You can't make libsem-dev build-essential for us (without consultation)
and then just drop like a hot potato once your currently favoured port
doesn't need it anymore. Orphan it if you want, but a request for
removal goes too far right now. We'll get it removed once we are
certain we don't need it anymore.
