Could you please re-read the Developer's Reference, the section on doing
NMUs?  While there are cases when small, helpful changes are not worth the
full machinery, one that introduces (rather than fixes) a severity:critical
bug ("breaks unrelated packages") is definitely not there.

And, both Thorsten and me just told you to not rush.

Fortunately, there was an upload race (one of the things that the NMU rules
prevent) and -3 wins over -2.2 thus we won't have to revert.  But still...
