Good to hear!

I just reduced its severity, down from "serious".  ;)

Well, it already says "recommended" rather than "required".  Also, the
package does not trigger the "notify-reboot-required" desktop
notifier.  Despite this I would be happy to take your advice and
emphasize that rebooting is not necessary if it were not for the fact
that this would require retranslation.
