Right, this would be problematic at least for us in Debian. Of course that if 
the patch is applied we can always unapply it.

Must it be assumed that because we are engineers beauty is not
our concern, and that while we make our constructions robust
and durable we do not also strive to make them elegant?
Is it not true that the genuine conditions of strength always
comply with the secret conditions of harmony?
