Bug#299792: lintian: Check multiple "Depends:" lines in control

Package: lintian
Version: 1.23.8
Severity: minor

Having multiple "Depends:" lines in control file confuses apt/dpkg. This
results in "apt-get upgrade" downloading and installing the offending
package everytime it is run, no matter package or version has changed.

It would be very usefull lintian to detect this problem.
