It's not an unreasonable request, but i'm not aware that lack of this feature causes a demonstrable regression or other bug against another package. Therefore it really should have a FinalFreeze Exception from the release team.

If you could provide a 2.2.17 patch or debdiff, it would certainly help get this moving

Additionally, if you are comfortable following the instructions here...

It would be a big help!

Thanks.
