I (mistakenly) thought that the plan was to fix the package in Jessie
at some point, so thanks for the update!

Now, this makes me wonder:

If there's any specific reason why we can't fix the package in Jessie
(time? technical reasons?), perhaps we should remove the package from
stable to avoid new users installing something we don't
support anymore?

And if indeed the package is not maintainable in current stable with
the resources we have, then I would like to question its inclusion in
the next stable release: why will we be able to support the package
for 3-5 years in Stretch, while we apparently are not in a position to
so for Jessie? (This is *not* a rhetorical question, I surely
missed something.)
