Good idea. Anyone coming up with a patch (I could risk doing that but
my perl-fu is somehow limited)? I bet Russ will include this in
lintian if we provide a patch.

We however need to also provide an explanation that lintian will give
when people meet this condition. In short, we need to explain
maintainers what should be done:
- either contact the person listed in Last-Translator and suggest
him|her to provide a "better" Language-Team field
- replace Language-Team with the releavant Debian language team: this
should be done only for debian/po/*.po *not* for upstream
translations...and this is anyway not the best suggestion for
maintainers to fiddle with this
- empty the field (probably the best solution, imho)
