Hi Gianfranco,

I had a feeling the DFSG and lintian changes maybe questioned, though
they are in-line with policy. For this reason I prepared a package
backup pre making these changes. :-)

Certain DFSG lintian warnings do possibly need discussion around them
and if they should be strictly adhered to.

I will upload a version without the contentious changes and we can go
from there.
