Please  Build-Depends-Indep  on  python,  even  if it  is  currently  an
indirect  dependency.  For  bzr-stats,  you  need to  move  python  from
Build-Depends to Build-Depends-Indep since it is not used on cleaning.

You put a real debian/watch file.  However, since you are tracking a bzr
branch, this is a bit useless. Just put some comments in it instead of a
real URL:
# This package uses the following bzr branch:
# http://....

Like you did for bzr-stats in fact.

I was thinking about one source  package and one binary package. No need
to go through NEW then. But you are right about dependencies.
