Why an NMU?  Please don't.  If you change the version number it will turn
the clock back on the dinstall.

If you absolutely have to make changes to the 4.0.2-1 sources, please do
them by stealth (e.g., do a binary upload with the same version number
despite the fact that your source doesn't match the official one).  I know
that's technically illegal but as long as you send me all the changes
everything will be fine.

Again, please, do NOT upload anything but 4.0.2-1.  Otherwise you will keep
X, and everything that depends on it, out of testing for at least another
14 days.
