Sure: we do need to fix our source packaging system.  I don't
agree with that very strongly.

But until it's fixed, I don't object to our coping with some of our
stronger needs for source packages (for example: pcmcia-source,
which apparently must be compiled against a specific instance of
kernel-source) to be packaged in .deb format.

More specifically, I don't think that late in the frozen stage is the
right time to introduce a new package format requirement for hamm.
