(just making a remark on the filelimit option, nothing else)

That option makes a guess, as it can't tell for sure how many diff files it 
is going to need before actually applying them. In the case of dak-created 
archives it works (or at least it used to) because the order of the patches 
in the Index file actually matched the order in which the patches would need 
to be applied.
There's not guarantee that the entries are ordered that way, however, so it 
may break at any time or when a different archive software is used.
