Good!  I appreciate the info.

Regarding rebuilds, if it's only a few packages affected we might be able
to squeeze them into RC1.  Bear in mind however that the build system will
be going down for a long-overdue maintenance overhaul shortly, so the
short-term focus should probably be on releasing and testing RC1 instead
of making it work 100% on Jessie.
