And I'm still saying that ranting _here_ about that is pointless.

Submit a bug report (I've just looked for it, but I didn't find it, does
it exist at all?), provide patches for it, and have them accepted by the
dpkg maintainers and FTP masters. They day they'll refuse the patches or
tag the bug as +wontfix you'll have a reason to complain and we will
hopefully know the technical reasons why the involved maintainers thin
it is a bad idea.

All this belongs to the BTS, not to -devel.
