This is a crock. The solutions presented is right, but it's lousy by
design. The real problem is that diff, although good for representing
changes from upstream source versus Debian source, can't--and apparently
doesn't--represent the changes from upstream package to Debian package.
Is there any plan amongst dpkg type folk to visit and solve this

Surely I can't be the first to complain about this.
