Patience is the key. Main developer is from USA, which means you're

Minimum listed sed version is 4.1.5 and that version supports -i.orig
just fine. I just downloaded the version and built it to test. Note
that the requirement is GNU sed, not any other, so the change is fine

Note: My last name is not Krejzi.
