I admit I would (also?) have preferred that we did not depend on a
missing error check in dpkg.  If the automatic check on jenkins.d.n is
extended early in the stretch cycle, I suspect we have a pretty good
chance at getting most of them done.
  My major concern right now is that we are still blind to the actual
number of remaining issues.  We only learn of them by getting occasional
"upgrade is broken" reports - this way, we are never really sure when we
have fixed the last one.
