My AM objected to my leaving .ex files in the debian/ directory, as did
the sponsor of another DD I talked to. I agreed with them that the extra
cruft in the diff.gz was not useful, and as Inigo Saitz mentions later in
this thread, the .ex files are in /usr/share/debhelper/dh_make/debian/
anyways. I'd suggest just removing them.
