Not upstream, but in Debian, in a version of the packaging, so it is now
available in testing.

But unfortunately, I am unsure if this warrants a stable-release-update.
Especially since a "solution" is to just install an additional package.
Quoting from the developers-reference [1]:
Basically, a package should only be uploaded to stable if one of the
following happens:

    a truly critical functionality problem

    the package becomes uninstallable

    a released architecture lacks the package
You *might* argue that the first is the case, but you must be having a
lot of people viewing the cacti pages for it to fill up your volumes
and/or small volumes.

I could prepare a stable-release-update proposal, and we could see if
the release team allows this change to be incorporated in the next
stable point release. What do you think?
