    Well, AFAICT that change should pose no problem at all, _but_ I'm in
paranoid mode because I don't really want to mess anything, now that we are
somewhat close to a release.

    Do you know if there is any easy way to rebuild all those packages with
the modified ruby-pkg-tools? I guess I can try that by hand, but I would
prefer something more automatic. Perhaps you can help with that, I don't know

    As I said, I have a tiny script to collect simple regression data (the
generated packages' file list), and I have used that to compare file lists by
the previous r-p-t and by the new, proposed r-p-t. Some of the packages
couldn't be built, probably because of missing Build-Depends or something, but
the ones which built correctly, did so with both versions, I think, and the
file list was the same, except for hobix (the fixed package). I didn't really
feel like investigating through the enormous output when I first tried
(imagine the output of a for loop, with about 20 source packages, building the
debs), but if there isn't any other, easier way...
