That's exactly the point: I don't think it's unlikely. And it can't be
tested until it reaches the buildds. At which point, seeing breakages
isn't exactly what we want when a release is about to happen.

As a middle ground, how does the following sound? First test this in
unstable with the first alpha for bullseye, and possible backport it
in a point release?
