It is really your call as the package maintainer.  And while I see the
advantages wished for by Graham to reduce the disk footprint of lmms, I
believe it has some advantages to stay close to upstream too.

This must be based on some misunderstanding.  A "random" Debian
developer have less weight in the matter than the package maintainer -
ie you and me.  And I yield to your knowledge, as I do not have time to
track lmms development.

I thus flag it wontfix.  I leave the closing to you. :)

Happy hacking
