Yes, I have been planning on doing that for a long time already

Uhm, have you checked that the result is what you need then. That
dependency is there for a good reason.

I don't have objections against others doing it, but as said, I planned
to do it already.

No objections, but I really think dh-exec needs to be backported as well
if we want the right magic to happen. The fix in dh-exec was made for
fpc and the use of it in this package. If your interested you can figure
it out from the changelog of dh-exec of the listed version.
