Fixing bugs is very welcome, especially RC ones. Actually, you can save time to
fix more RC bugs by not fixing the less important ones in the packages that you
try to rescue :) I still recommend to not include a new upstream release in the
NMU you are proposing. Especially because the package is poorly maintained: the
side effect of the NMU is to rescue the package from removal, so if nobody
feels responsible for it, it is safer to not introduce changes that can
introduce new bugs.
