I don't think lintian counts as something that is broken by this. Old
versions of lintian didn't include this check, since the developer's
reference didn't specify the broken version numbers.

Also, lintian's NMU handling code is broken in plenty of other ways. For
example, it relies heiristically on a given set of phrases in the
changelog to indicate an NMU.

Any better examples?
