Good question.  I guess it's an artefact of intermediate versions that
haven't even been uploaded.

The new version causes a bunch of FTBFSes in other packages.

Logs from my last rebuild of build-rdeps:

A MAP07 (Dead Simple) raspberry tincture recipe: 0.5l 95% alcohol, 1kg
raspberries, 0.4kg sugar; put into a big jar for 1 month.  Filter out and
throw away the fruits (can dump them into a cake, etc), let the drink age
at least 3-6 months.
