Yes, I believe you are correct.  Number (2) is a foolish idea; the
package should either use the library, and adopt (1), or it should
not, and use (3).

That means that a maybe-yes-maybe-no is inconsistent and a bug in the
package.  So since I'm the new maintainer, I'm bumping it back up to
normal severity.
