This means that dpkg-sig needs to be completly re-written, even though
it was working quite well (before it was blocked by ftp-masters). Not
exactly what I would consider helpful, but well.
Anyways, I don't think discussing this topic more will gain us
anything. (And also the question of signing .deb-packages is completly
orthogonal from authentication of the downloaded packages files which
works, and which is necessary for protection from taken over hosts
like kernel.org this time).
