Hope you guys don't mind if I just jump in here and try to cool down the
discussion, since it's getting kinda "flamy".

There is only one person to blame for not applying the patch or raising
concerns about it in a timely fashion and that is you.
Ron mentioned he took over the package a few weeks back , so this
blame shifting isn't really accurate (not to mention it's IMHO a bit too
confrontational to be constructive; though I understand you were
reacting to a equally confrontational comment from the previous email).
To get some distance and perspective I'd suggest referring this to the
release-team: if they see the possible downfall as an acceptable
trade-off for the multi-arch release goal, then go ahead with the
patching, uploading and fixing bugs as they appear. Otherwise leave it be.
