The same could be true of any secret modifications to any program made
by its upstream author. Perhaps the debhelper that I actually develop is
written in a very high level language or templating system that compiles
it down to the dh_* files that you get in the source package. They do
all look somewhat similar, don't they? If I made such a claim, would
you consider that debhelper needs to be removed from Debian now?
