Tone-of-voice used by sponsors

I think it would be better if you toned down this
do-as-I-say-or-I-wont-sponsor-you attitude.  As others have mentioned,
some of the nitpicking is really your personal preferences, and not
really something that makes a new Developer much better at the tasks
involved in maintaining a package.

Anyways, as new Developers get more comfortable with the debhelper
parts, the superfluous comments seem to vanish.  That is my experience.
