There's no need to recompile anything. You can recompress existing packages
using the attached script.

What about
packages which are the same version in wheezy and in squeeze - now
you're looking at making a new point release with all packages across
all suites changing checksums.

SRM would need an awful lot of convincing that doing that was anything other than a really bad idea.
