Exactly. I did consider the diverging names, but as they are on
different variable-spaces (config vs envvar), I went for consistency
with existing dpkg generic variables (DEB_), instead of the program
specific devscripts namespace. It might still be slightly confusing
if debsign would get changed to recognize it perhaps, is that what
you are worried about?
