Inverting the "dh --with quilt" seems too invasive for me. I was planning
to backport quilt before mercurial but it contradict the backports rules :
quilt from testing is installable without any rebuild on lenny.
To build my backport for lenny, I used a chroot where I manually installed
quilt from testing (and quilt dependencies from plain lenny).

Do not expect me to be reactive.
