        No, please don't/ It is one thing to patch dpkg to make things
 easier for the derivatives (on the other hand, they can patch their
 own version of dpkg), it is another to change how uplaods work in
 Debian, or to reject uploads to Debian because one forgot add the
 debian origin.

The trouble with opportunity is that it always comes disguised as hard
work. Herbert V. Prochnow
