Ah, cool – so we have only to patch this tool to automatically
use the highest number per batch on all affected architectures
(or even to use the highest number if all architectures would
be touched, but that’s probably an unreasonable amount of code

Well, except you only really want to do it for libraries that are ma:same, as that's the only case where it actually matters and otherwise you're pointlessly losing versions.

It's also not quite that simple, even working things out by hand - see #599128 for example.

Where’s the source code to that tool?

http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/debian-release/release-tools.git/ (in scripts/).
