I know, but that's a longer term solution than this short-term NMU.
As long as there is no keyring package (and neither myself nor Igor
have had time yet), dpkg's copy of the keyring might as well be
uptodate.  Once we've done the keyring package, this copy of the
keyring should IMO go (though that's not something I'm going to do in
an NMU without getting confirmation first).

Again, this was a short term solution thing; I too seemed to remember
that being the consensus, so I made a note to check the archives later
and updated the shlibs.default.i386 file; better an uptodate obsolete
file than an outofdate one.
