I fail to see the outrage (since there was none, I will note to sugar coat replies for now on), and I fail to see how you managed to spell my name wrong (which is somewhat of an insult to be honest). If you knew months ago, why did you not bring this up in a ticket months ago? It would have been much more viable (and feasible) to bring it up months in advance (to the developers) then it would have to expect them (again) to instantly patch it after it's final release. While I have no doubt the package maintainer will update soon, you can't always expect that (take a look at some of our major packages some servers rely on which take a while), try checking sid and see if it has an updated package. There is a wishlist on the ticket system.
