I think you might need to switch to either use the libdpkg-perl
Dpkg::Vendor module, or just parse the dpkg origins file directly
(as I've mentioned elsewhere on the list, those should be considered
interfaces by themselves), otherwise you'd need to make popcon
depend on dpkg-dev, which is a bit heavy.
