I just requested a binNMU, but this should be handled more general in
the rpy package:
python-rpy needs a tighter dependency on r-base-core as the module has
the R version encoded in its name. If this can be handled at build time,
e.g. by setting and using a substvar, e.g. ${R-upstream-version}, and
    Depends: ...,
      r-base-core (>= ${R-upstream-version}),
      r-base-core (<< ${R-upstream-version}.0),
binNMUs will be sufficient to update the dependencies while the stricter
versioning will ensure that rpy gets rebuild before a new R patch level
release (1.15.x) can migrate to testing.
