Would it make sense to change that to "must be compressed"? I know it
makes all packages instantly buggy, but since that's a _really_ easy
thing to change, and almost all packages can be fixed via a debhelper
change plus a rebuild, it's should be trivial to get things fixed for
Having every package have the same name for the file seems like a better
situation than having to check which name to use.
