Do *not* file 6229 bugs about the same subject. Never.

Adding a watchfile is up to the maintainer. It's a feature offered to
maintainers, they can use it if the wish. If a watchfile for a package
makes sense (for quite some packages it doesn't) I think it's useful.
In no case should 6229 bugs be filed about these watchfiles that don't
have ANY effect on the resulting binary packages.
