This is because while it's effectively Debian-native, having
an upstream/debian sepatation does make patching prior
releases, backporting, etc. easier. Especially with regard
to versioning and making new releases.

The files changed are as in the diff I attached. I did a new upstream
release, rather than patching in the diff, because it required changing
the upstream configure with a new m4 macro, and then regenerating by
re-bootstrapping with the autotools. Also, the bug was really an
upstream bug rather than specifically Debian-related, so it did
warrant a new upstream release.
All the changed files are from autotools rebootstrapping, plus
regenerating the documentation with doxygen.
I will go through the debdiff and verify that this is the case;
I have no reason to suspect it is not, but I'll double check.
