It would probably be pretty trivial to add this to the control-file
though; we already have to info so we can make the .changes file.

Can someone write up a proposol to:
1) add a Compiled-By field to the control-file
2) add an Uploader field (might be different from the Compiled-By) to the
3) change the semantics of the maintainer-field in the .changes file

This would require a couple of minor changes to dpkg-dev, but I think it
would be an improvement.
