I'd be happy to sponsor a maintainer upload with this or a similar change
if you prepare one - I'd prefer to upload something that someone who knows
the software has tested! Or please let me know if you'd like me to prepare
a non-maintainer upload and send it to you for testing.

Hurd isn't a release architecture (and never has been, unlike kFreeBSD)
so I don't mind whether it has an OSS4 dependency there - it isn't going
to disrupt the release either way. Do you have any preference for
whether it's [!linux-any] or [kfreebsd-any]?

In NMUs for other packages I've been using [!linux-any] so it's only
a change to previous behaviour on the kernel I know about.
