Bug#274747: dependency on dpkg-dev is not required for provides

Package: type-handling
Version: 0.2.23
Severity: normal

This issue has just become somewhat more commonplace:
gnome-desktop-environment now uses type-handling, depending on
"gnome-mount | linux-gnu", and on "policykit-1-gnome | not+linux-gnu".

"Architecture: all".  This seems like a very useful application of

Please, consider splitting the provides into a separate package which
does not depend on dpkg-dev.
