Why delay? The debdiff is in the bug report, and an NMU will get
uploaded to DELAYED, so the maintainer has plenty of time to act; that
is if they are indeed going to act. If not then the NMU goes through.
I don't see the problem.
Personally I'd prefer to not have to context-switch back to the problem
a day later when I can deal with it all at once.
