"RC" means a "Release Critical" bug, ie, severity:critical, serious or
grave; these tend to block a package from being considered releasable and
point to a bug that wants a stable update.  (Stable updates are nowadays
also accepted for severity:important on a case-by-case basis.)

Well, <F8> means ø so it should be "Jørgensen" but 7-bit ASCII only might be
good enough.

Looks good to me, uploaded.

It would be nice if you could file RFSes as bugs rather than merely a mail
to the list -- this way they don't fall through the cracks if no one acts
upon them immediately.
