BTW, do you think it would make sense to cherry pick
d01212f2d7e59fc713c66b5d60421ac2296c1463 in dpkg 1.17.x for stable,
given that there's a point release quite soon, and then we could
consider reenabling inclusiong of signatures for source format 1.0
in unstable once the point release is done? (Taking into account Ian's
remark that just the change being in stable-updates is not good enough.)
