don't blame piuparts if you violate policy

Hi Sylvain,

as well explained by Andreas in 
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=789772#15 these are serious 
bugs in your packages. They are serious because the violate the standards we 
as a distribution expect from our packages in stable - not because piuparts 
says so. (And that we as a dsitribution except quality packages is enforced by 
the release team.)

Just claiming "there is no problem" is not an acceptable solution, not for our 
users (and neither for the release team). Users rightfully expect not to be 
prompted for such changes on upgrades, yet this can+will happen, as Andreas 

As a sidenote, it's usually a good indicator thta one is doing something 
wrong, if 20000 other (source) packages don't show this behaviour / achieve it 
through other means... sometimes there are valid exceptions, but usually not.
