Likewise dgit, which does the signing only in "dgit push". It does it
by itself without the use of debsign or anything from dpkg-dev.
I have no objection to the proposed change to dpkg-buildpackage, or
the moving of functionality from devscripts.
I do of course want debsign's command line interface and functionality
to continue to work in its entirity. But I also need the arrangements
for making the signature remain part of the defined interface, so that
dgit keeps working: i.e. even if this functionality becomes part of
dpkg-dev, its use should not be mandatory.
