That'd be more involved change. We used to only look at
unstable/experimental to gather maintainer information. The problem
with that is if a source package gets renamed, you will (hopefully)
still care about it in stable for security updates, so we need to
extract some maintainer information from stable as well.

I guess the fix is to check if the package still exists in unstable,
and maybe check for changed maintainer information. The logic for that
would be complex and probably have a lot of bugs or corner cases where
users would disagree over the Right Thing to do...
