In librsvg, breakages with more recent Rust versions in the past year
required updates of two vendored crates:

For updating Rust in Debian stable for the next Firefox ESR update it
would actually be useful if these violations of the "hard stability
guarantee" in Rust get fixed, so that the old librsvg 2.44.10 builds
again with the latest Rust.

It also makes me wonder how such regressions slip into Rust releases.
