Was the point of this exercise to provide as minimal a fix as
possible, or to improve the quality of Debian as a whole? I don't see
why abstractions/lightdm_chromium-browser would have been left in by
the fix unless the former was the goal.

I believe we decided that patching the abstraction [so that it parses
without error] was not the way to go, since it's part of the lightdm
session stuff, which is not used in Debian anyway. What I'm asking is
just to remove the file, which is a trivial change to debian/rules.

I'm not all that interested in this issue, actually. I just want a clean
fix, and don't understand why you're arguing the point.
