I'm fully happy to see that solved in whatever way. However, getting
it sorted out for binNMUs seems like some kind of priority to me.

Perhaps we could add the binNMU entry for the moment and fix the rest
later? Or whatever would make you more happy. Just I'd like to be able
to schedule binNMUs again on ma-packages.
