I thought of that myself, but then I figured that this problem happened
with edgy (not sure about feisty, since I never tested 0.9.35 without
the 2 new build-depends.)  It seemed really weird that dependencies
would change in edgy packages so long after release.

Anyway, it's working now, and I guess we can let it be.
