Moving dpkg-gentdeb into /usr/bin/

Hi Neil!

I've just noticed you moved dpkg-gentdeb into /usr/bin/ from
/usr/share/embdebian-tools/ [0], and that you expect to merge that
command into dpkg-dev during this Debian release cycle. But the
implementation behind that command has never been discussed on this
list, and I think I can speak for both Raphaël [1] and myself [2]
in that we are not really happy with the spec published [3] some
time ago. So I'd ask you to either not move the command or not take
over the dpkg namespace.
