Lintian is not perfect-- there have been errors in the past.
And there are borderline cases which cause it to report an error. For some
reason, which I never figured out, changing permissions on some files in a
perl module to satisfy lintian causes the module to break. (otoh, there may
be a technical solution to this) Some errors take time to
fix and should not slow the development of the entire system.
