unscd was made to resolve the problems seen in nscd where nscd is near
useless in a system with any amount of load (see #574990 et al.)

That's your decision, but considering the ease with which the package
can be removed if it holds up the release at all (and the real issues
with nscd that it resolves), I'd suggest revisiting this decision.

Grimble left his mother in the food store and went to the launderette
and watched the clothes go round. It was a bit like color television
