I read on -devel that there was a suggestion to add .0 for a simple
rebuild; this sounds sensible to me. So, 1.16-2 would become 1.16-2.0,
1.2-3.1 would become 1.2-3.1.0, etc.

It's only a simple rebuild, right? You're not changing anything (besides
the changelog)? Then don't do any diffs. Just make sure the changelog
entry says something like:
* NMU for Alpha to fix dependency (simple rebuild only)
This is what gets posted to the devel-changes list, so people know
what's going on. Also: make sure that the changelog says "frozen
unstable", otherwise chances are it'll only go into potato!
