dak uses the libraries provided by APT. I'm not sure if there are other
parts that break, but we could try once the support is included in APT.
Note that the archive software runs on Debian stable. So ftp-master.d.o
will only be able to process packages using build profiles once APT in
stable supports the new syntax.

Does lintian handle the field correctly?
