We had a specific request for Lintian to not warn about UNRELEASED as the
distribution so that people could run it on each build and know that any
output meant a problem.  Unfortunately, that creates the possibility for
something like this to happen, since dput and dupload only look at the
*.changes file and don't care about what's in the changelog, and Lintian's
architecture makes it very hard for it to see a mismatch between the
*.changes file and the package.
