I have only partially implemented 3.5.0 so I have not changed the number and
fool you into believing you are fully up to date. The warning itself is safe,
and i am doing about 70% of 3.5.0. To fully be up to date I have to read every
check script and compare it against current policy. Since I am beginning work
on a rewrite of lintian, I decided i could kill a few birds with one stone.
