Patch to the BTS plus a DELAYED/n upload (with a sufficiently large n)
is, to me, a way of asking the maintainer. It is, perhaps, less smoothly
diplomatic than e-mailing privately, but I don't really see that it is
rude. One e-mail response from the maintainer should be enough for the
DELAYED upload to be deleted (by the would-be NMUer, of course).
