I'm happy to add Chris's bug-fix and a couple of other small niceties
for release as long as Manoj is OK with that.

The one important thing that will need changing is that the testing
scripts are probably (hopefully) going to move back to severity
'critical' from 'emergency' to match dpkg-dev >= 1.9.11 at some point
in the very near future, so the footnote about this needs changing.

Manoj: the CVS command 'cvs diff' will probably be very useful for
tracking any of these small changes.  Thanks for your work on this!
