Actually, if I understood everything correct, the issue with the long
lines used to be that on the way from the buildd to the buildd
maintainer, the long line in the changes-file could be broken by MTAs,
and this has been fixed. The best way to test if this is all would be to
upload one source package producing all udebs to experimental, and see
what happens.
