Let me see if I got it right:
You filed a bug against karchiver because it:
* is not in etch (because it was not uploaded in time for etch),
* is orphaned (...); and because
* it has a "low" popcon (283/86 inst/vote; for a package that has never been
in stable)
And because of those reasons we are preventing a package from being shipped
in lenny? Is that right?

IMHO there are many other packages that are better candidates for not being
shipped in lenny than the above mentioned example.
