Non-PIC in shared libraries is not a policy exception [BTW: Who grants
a policy exception? You?!], it is a bug, even on i386. The only reason
why we don't touch it is that we don't want to divert from upstream
and leave it up to them to fix it. Upstream is very sensitive about
Debian modifying their code, you know?

I do also *strongly recommend* that you communicate your proposed
changes on the list *before* you apply them - starting from now. Don't
get me wrong, we can always use a helping hand but we have no use for
people who fail to communicate.

I have raised my concerns on this mailing list on July 6th and only
got a response from Reinhard. Then, on July 9th I wrote another mail
to the list directly addressed at you, asking you for objections
against the removal.
Anyway, even if you missed this last mail, I think it should be good
behaviour to contact a person before reverting a commit - you did it
silently only 3 hours after my commit without any comment on the list...
