Sometimes actually getting things working is more important than
worrying about which rules they violate, and I'm volunteering to get
things working. In any case, the serious severity is also for "in the
package maintainer's opinion, makes the package unsuitable for release",
and in this package maintainer's opinion a package that can't be built
by autobuilders is unsuitable.
