I would prefer to apply your change; mainly because it removes the
special handling of udebs in one place (and fewer special cases is
However, I am not sure about the required format to udeb .desc files. As

* the Package: field is not needed for udebs
* but if it is there and contains alternatives, the installation breaks.
