Why should it be removed ? There is really no reason for it, we are not
near the release in any stretch of the imagination, we are at least
month from being ready.

Also i find it really unacceptable that i get threated like that, while
the ftp-masters are letting a package that fixes at least two RC-related
bugs (altough not filled, but they know about it) rooting in the NEW
queue since month. Again, debian shows that not all developpers are
equal here.

I think it is not worth it until :

  1) the autobuilder are fixed. 

  2) the NMU also fixes some of the more annoying bugs i am working on.

Time would be much better spent fixing one of the billion other RC bugs
around, instead of this minor bug.
