Interesting.  The reason this came up is a couple of days ago I had an
extremely important upload to make for webmin.  I put critical in the
changelog but dpkg-parsechangelog bombed out.  That's when I did some
investigation and discovered the new set of urgencies.  I replaced
critical with emergency and it worked.  IIRC it didn't get installed in
the archive until two days later.  And today I installed the new policy
saw it still mentioned the old values and got confused. :-)

So is this a dpkg-parsechangelog bug or have the archive scripts not
caught up to new developments yet?
