Before I read your mail, I thought that it was not possible, but after
googling a bit, I found out that dpkg supports comments since version
This is however just general comments, they are not meant to be parsed
for display to the end-user. I will nevertheless start to use them. I
think that it is very valuable in team-maintained packages, where it is
sometimes difficult to know what motivated the actions of another
developper years before.
