If you want this in Wheezy, please read the freeze-policy [1] and make
sure that your package has minimal changes to fix the bug.

No, you don't NEED to become a maintainer in that sense. If you prefer,
you can always prepare the package and ask here for someone to upload.
But always be prepared to defend your choices and to do some iterations
to get things in shape.
