	I'm rather skeptical that removing something that is basically a empty
perl script from rules is worth a upload. Lintian stuff has a wide range
of things it adresses and IMHO a upload for lintian fixes is exactly
then worth a upload if the fixes warrant a upload independent from what
lintian says.
