Why? Why did you ignore the patches posted to the bug? Even Diego, the original reporter, commented that the patches fix the problems.[1]

Bug opened for 1 year.
Diego commented on 30 July 2009.
No other response from maintainers...

If there is patch it is maintainers job to apply them. At least was when
I last looked.

We of course can patch the bundled versions and wait for next breakage,
but it is simpler to treeclean it and let people reintroduce it later
without bundled libs...

One of the reasons I left the treecleaner project was that it became apparent
that people were more interested in dumping packages with simple problems
than fixing them (which believe it or not, was what treecleaner was formed to
do). Now they call it QA.

I'm all for dropping broken crap, but things people use with working patches
attached? QA is also about getting that stuff applied.
