Please still consider scheduling the binNMU, anyway, as it's still directly
linked against libdatrie1, which I'd like to get rid of. The sourceful m17n-lib
upload was done before the recent change to libthai.la, which totally got
rid of -ldatrie.

It's my misunderstanding that the previous preparation by changing
libthai.pc in unstable was enough for pango to be free from libdatrie0,
as it was the case for other packages like scim-thai and gtk-im-libthai
before. But that turned out to be wrong.
Unfortunately, I forgot the fact that libthai-dev still ships libthai.la,
not really for linking purpose, but to only satisfy Thai KDE users'
needs, as kdelibs 3 requires *.la to dlopen()!
So, I've recently updated libthai.la to get rid of the problem.
I was about to request for binNMU but the binNMU for pango
was quick enough. So, I just waited for buildd to finish the
builds on some archs before requesting m17n-lib.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Things didn't go as planned.
I'll contact release team sooner next time for similar case.
