Yeah, it's on purpose. It's a local debbugs version, thus
local-debbugs; the package namespace, though, is debbugs, thus

However, given that at least four people have asked this very same
question, it seems clear that it's not obvious to anyone else, so I
probably need to drop in a debbugs-local symlink.

I shall require that [a scientific system's] logical form shall be
such that it can be singled out, by means of emperical tests, in a
negative sense: it must be possible for an emperical scientific system
to be refuted by experience.
