Okay, reading through the bugs, it does make sense to fix it, but..
Is this package in a completely useless state w/o this?
Alternatively, if this isn't fixed, will it have a high impact, et al?

Each update to stretch goes through the -security pocket and needs a
DLA, irrespective of whether it's a security bug or not. In the past,
we've fixed some non-security bugs[1], but we only fix them if the
severity is high & the package is in a broken state altogether.

So let me know if what you think about the questions above & we can
take it from there?
I'm also CC'ing Emilio, currently at FD, to TAL.
