pulseaudio build-depends on this package, so is quite important to be
able to cross-build it, to help to bootstrap new architectures (or
rebootstrap existing ones).

Would it be possible to have it applied, or do you --as maintainers--
see any problem with it?

Can we help to move the issue forward in any way?  I can offer to NMU if
it helps, but since it seems actively maintained, I'd prefer if
maintainers take care of this.
