may be confusion is due to my shell rotten fingers typing? ;)

my guess is that divergence was due to severe novelty of that package:

olefile (0.44-1) unstable; urgency=medium

* New upstream release.

olefile (0.43-1) unstable; urgency=medium

* Initial release (closes: #850404).

and I guess recent python-pil pruned olefile from the depends (I believe it
was there in prev version)

although I don't see any corresponding changelog entry for that in
http://metadata.ftp-master.debian.org/changelogs/main/p/pillow/pillow_4.0.0-2_changelog

Matthias -- could you clarify if olefile depends was consciously removed or
should we complain with a bug report? ;-) unfortunately there is no VCS
defined for python-pil to go through the laundry:

# apt-cache policy python-pil
python-pil:
Installed: 4.0.0-2
Candidate: 4.0.0-2
Version table:
*** 4.0.0-2 500
500 http://127.0.0.1:3142/debian sid/main amd64 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
# apt-cache show python-pil | grep olefile


$> debcheckout python-pil
No repository found for package python-pil.
