Well it is according to lintian:

http://lintian.debian.org/tags/doc-base-unknown-section.html
-> http://vmlinux.org/cgi-bin/dwww/usr/share/doc/doc-base/doc-base.html/ch-interface.html#s-section_field

Well this is what was done in the previous upload. I just made the
transition easier.
As a side note, I went from an original size of:

 $ ls -al docbook-slides-demo-3.4.0.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 mathieu mathieu 140829 2005-04-28 16:39
docbook-slides-demo-3.4.0.tar.gz

To a size of:

$ ls -al docbook-slides-demo_3.4.0.orig.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 2 mathieu mathieu 137592 2010-01-27 17:10
docbook-slides-demo_3.4.0.orig.tar.gz

Isn't it suggested to GZIP=-9 somewhere in the documentation ?
