Oh, I didn't know about these fields.  I'll see with upstream how to
filter on these values.  That said, normally it's the USB ID which is
customised, not manufacturer and product.

That's still one of the things we'd need to determine.

apt-cache rdepends brltty

doesn't show anything that depends on or recommends brltty,
except brltty-{espeak,flite,speechd}, which nobody depends on or
recommends. When removing brltty, does it not uninstall anything?
