So what?  The quote above is part of my answer to the question "This
should be unambiguous, correct?" not whether this will be accepted
by debian.  If there's nothing to suggest otherwise, I think it could
be accepted (and I would hope that's obvious from the second answer
I gave), but that doesn't mean it's unambiguous.

Please, try not to criticise me for answering the questions asked,
rather than imagined ones.
