I think the problem is that most people will try to find the man page for
dpkg, not dpkg-deb which is something different as seen from the user.
The man-pages in my dpkg package refer to dpkg(5), dpkg(8), dpkg-dep(8),
dselect(8), deb(5) and deb-control(5). None of the man-pages refer to
dpkg-deb :-). My dpkg package, however includes the following:
dpkg version 1.0.6
