pciutils frozen

Does this mean all reverse depends are effectively frozen as well? I was hoping
I could do one more upload which fixes some small bugs (translation, removing one 
spurious file) in uswsusp. Also there a serious bug (#397214) opened against 
my package, for which I maybe need to do an upload. I'm not sure that it is a 
real serious bug yet, though.
