This is not a release goal for wheezy and I'm sure the release team
wouldn't be too happy with such a change during the freeze. If possible
I'd like to drop libnl1 early on in the jessie release cycle.

An upload to experimental would be great, though.

But thanks for the question. I will follow up with the other bug reports
to make that clear and not cause any unwanted uploads to unstable.

Cheers,
Michael
