The Packages files should not see the difference.

That is, they should be set up for some directory so that <dir>/<dist>/ 
binary-* is the place for the binaries, which is true for the new dists/ 
<version> directory as well as for the /debian root for stable and frozen,  
and only for the new directory for unstable (since unstable no longer uses  
shared-for-all-versions contrib and non-free directories, but instead has  
version-specific ones.

(Where dist=main/contrib/non-free, and version=stable/frozen/unstable.  
Also, the old version has main named stable/frozen/unstable instead.)
