Are there any plans to extend this on binary-only uploads?
"package-contains-info-dir" is an example for something that depends on
the build environment so that it might only show up on some architectures
but not in the packages uploaded with the source (as usually the maintainer
will be told my lintian if building in such a way that it happens and thus
fixed it in that case).
