distribution handling : a different approach

developers should list the flaws of a package in the control file,
the dpkg* utils should copy this list into the changes and the dsc file.
the decission, where to put the files should be made on master, not by
the single developers. this will give us much more flexiblity.

the flaws could be this :
orphaned		no longer maintained
crippleware		no real functionality
nocdrom			restrictions to distribution
crypto			subject of the US export restrictions
commercial		not a free software : read licence for details

flaws should be listes in the control file like
Flaws: oprhaned crypto

what do you think ? 
the names i used are not good, but the concept ?

regards, andreas
