Thanks for the extra info. However I still fail to understand.
Could you please as requested provide a concrete example of a packaging
which fails due to this bug? Need not be an existing package - feel
free to construct one.
Until this is proven to be a real bug I dare lower the severity. I
strongly suspect that the issue really is only cosmetic.

One issue that I know of is that that option forces a recent release of
Python, causing problems with backports.
