Which leads to the following slightly odd situation:

  031b93c587b6ec6affd0f4f713e50189  debian/pool/main/d/debsums/debsums_2.0.24_all.deb
  f1d470a0dea2fdaf9342e32aa08b7e79  ubuntu/pool/universe/d/debsums/debsums_2.0.24_all.deb

While Ubuntu is not, as you say, concerned with binary compatability it
does make me vaguely uneasy to see such binaryNMUs with the same path
name...  although I guess this is no different to the zillions of RPMs
out there from different distributions.
