I'd be happier not to leave potential timebombs around, but you haven't
given enough information about this for me to address it...

I haven't tried to test it yet - I've been short of time lately and it's
a non-trivial amount of work to do so, and my understanding was that the
patch wasn't suitable as-is.

I'll try to find time to test it.  Also happy for someone else to test
the amended patch and NMU if it works, but please keep me in the loop to
avoid duplicating effort.

(If someone does NMU, you could usefully drop `--enable-sdl` in
debian/rules to close #802770 - there's no corresponding BD so this
doesn't affect the built result in a clean chroot).
