Yes, how I cursed that one, once I realised it had got out.
I sent three ITPs, and one made it out wrong. I knew some one would spot it,

Ah. So that's what I did wrong, maybe.
The two packages build from the same source. Does that mean a single ITP is
necessary? I have not raised ITPs before, so was not sure exactly.
One question this raises in my mind:
suppose I have a single source tar.gz, that I want to build into four debian
binary packages, with different names (obviously). If this should require
only one ITP, which package name should the ITP be made for?
