And what are we then supposed to do when there is a security hole in
pine, or a bad interaction with something else in debian that upstream
will not fix? For that matter, an unmodified pine source is unlikely to
even comply with debian policy, so has no business being distributed by
us. No debian developer is liable to do this; debian is about more than
running configure and making a tarball.
