On the other hand, the bug [1] doesn't document any actual issues seen
today afaict, and the note about using volatile seems relevant. Also,
upstream is active, with releases in 2013.

The situation is not unlike those faced by various video fetchers
(e.g. libquvi-scripts, youtube-dl etc etc). Of course, it's your
choice; I don't really know the burden of maintaining scraping modules
and updating them via *-updates.
