Sure, it could. I took the opportunity to do some fixes and fix Bug#473438,
which were pending in SVN. Have you announced the binNMus somewhere? I
probably missed the announcement.
At any rate, we are still waiting for the bloody hdf5 on some architectures.
I proposed a patch  to fix the openmpi dependency problem and I am
waiting for the reaction of the maintainers. If this takes too long, we
should consider NMUing.
After that, we should address the FTBFS problems with petsc.
