Let me know if you could use help with this. I did a small POC patch
against the scripts to see whether the switch to lintian.d directory
would be feasible, but then didn't finish it for submission.
I have a small script ready that checks packages for setuid/setgid
files. There are some other things that would IMHO be interesting to
check from a security perspective - we can probably get some good
information from this once the infrastructure in in place.
