  So a big fuss is made about this practice making buildd uploads have
  an "incorrect" Changed-By header, when such uploads contain blatant
  incorrect maintainer information themselves (yes, I know why). What
  would you think of a person filing serious bugs because of this?

  Anyway, I'll answer more productively in the new thread.
