And today another firefox-esr, with CVE fixes, appeared, which is also
blocked by this.

If it really helps migrating this lot sooner, I am willing to accept
*new* autopkgtest results that fail (so no regressions) if you'll keep
on working to fix it. If so, please let me know which ones.

As discussed on IRC, there is the excuses.(html|yaml) file that helps
with that. At least for migration blocking items.

Note, rust-debcargo (with your autopkgtest improvements) is also having
issues to migrate (due to rust-cargo, rust-git2, rust-glob, rust-im-rc,
rust-toml, rustc).
