It's only needed for gtk-builder-convert; I suppose I could just provide
the .ui files in a patch, but I'd rather build everything from the original
sources as far as possible.

OK - do you have any pointers to migration documentation? The main intent of
the NMU was to fix the FTBFS, not really overhaul the whole package, but it
would indeed be better to avoid leaving predictable future FTBFSes...
Thanks for looking at the package,
