I see your confusion and I understand it. It is not so good feeling to
try to satisfy contradicting requirements.

I, personally, will not sponsor a package that replaces a perfectly
working "make install" with broken dh_install usage. Even if
dh_install usage is fixed, I still don't like it. This, of course, does
not mean that nobody else will want to sponsor it.

About the signing. the .dsc file is (wrapped):
--------------------------------------
Format: 1.0
Source: peless
Binary: peless
[...]
Files:
c56508f8e052b10cd799c8e0a9253909 109646 peless_1.108.orig.tar.gz
ccdc4f9b61f88c324acbd707f03cb5d2 2659 peless_1.108-1.diff.gz
--------------------------------------

Compare this to (a random example)
ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/glibc/glibc_2.3.6.ds1-13.dsc

Without a proper signature[1], how can I be sure that the .dsc file I am
downloading is the same you created?
