First, to be clear, as rust packages are built as static, in the current 
state, it means that ripgrep would be working in Buster without
any issue. It would (only) cause issues on derivative when rebuilding 
some of the dependencies of the tree (I know this is an RC bug).

So, kpcyrd and myself have two options:

* upload encoding-rs+grep+grep-searcher+ignore to remove the dependency 
on simd.

This is a trivial changes in the four packages (just disabling the 
option which, afaik, wasn't used anyway).

This is ready for upload. ripgrep doesn't regress and the testsuite is 

* write a dummy patch in encoding to get ride of the dependency and keep 
the feature presented.

This is ongoing work and should be ready tomorrow. It would require only 
one upload.

What do you think would be acceptable?
