Hi Kurt,

I'm reopening this bug now as nothing seems to have happened.

That didn't quite work out, did it? Admittedly, I didn't check behind
the scenes, i.e. in VCSs or what, but there hasn't been an upload and
I'd like you to keep this bug open now and close it with the next
upload. I hope you see something like this happening in future,
otherwise I still think a removal request might be better.
