This could be corrected with dpkg-scanpackages, but that's not really
the right thing to do.  I don't know the best way to handle this.

Huh?  If you can find the dsc, then the other source files will be
right along with it.

I'll look into having dpkg-scanpackages scan the dsc's as well and add
sections at least.  AFAIK, no programs parses them yet?  I'd rather
not have a new index file.

No such plans.
