Just to gkeep the credit's straight, this was actually something Phil Blundell 
suggested to me, modelled on the way udebs are set out.

I think this applies to a lot of this stuff - we can make lists of pros and
cons of things, which is OK as far as it goes, and helps catch problems we
might not think of individually, but ultimately I think we have to try it on
a reasonable subset of packages to find out what works and what doesn't.

e.g how many packages don't use debhelper?, how many places do we need the
change the infrastructure to use the new targets (where we put the files).
What breaks that we weren't expecting?
