[Impact]
 * Affects all valac reverse-dependency on buildtime

[Test Case]
 * Mass-rebuild of rdepends can be found here
   https://launchpad.net/~ricotz/+archive/ubuntu/cosmic-vala-sru-0-42-3/+packages?batch=200&memo=0&start=0

[Regression Potential]
 * Not immediately while it requires an rdepend rebuild to manifest.

[Other Info]
 * Regular upstream maintenance releases are likely to happen every 1-2 months
