Hmm, I played around a bit today with tailor and the CVS repository
(www.dpkg.org seems to be down atm, so I have no idea how to get
the arch data) but this also fails in many interesting ways.
Importing the CVS data with cvs2svn seems the way more robust method.
But then we still have to find a way to import the 1.13 branch
from arch...
