So, I saw that upload and, indeed, accepted it as the path of least
resistance, but I'm also asking around as to what fell down with the
exfat-utils MIR.  Given that all testing this cycle probably had
that package installed, it would be better if the MIR could be done,
if there's time.  That said, we might have to live with the current
situation if there's not enough bandwidth to process the request (or
if the MIR fails).
