1.36 has no rdeps at all, so please file the RM bug right away. :)

1.35 has witty on all arch, libfwbase1 on amd64/i386. Also abiword and
framebase have build-deps on parts of it, but no other dep.
You could also file a RM bug on this one, but immediately tag it
moreinfo. Then block it as soon as 1.37 is in with the bugs you then
file again those few packages to update themselve.

If thats a plan for you we can go on with 1.37 :)

bye, Joerg
<Joey> Joey, provide a patch then.
