That's bullshit. You can't guarantee that you don't introduce bugs along
with whatever else you feel to be important. Not touching the package
can. Therefore, I will only accept release critical fixes and l10n
updates for dpkg, together with changes to code that is not used in
lenny (that is "Format: 3.0 .+").

The fact that you dared to ask on the #-release channel if we would
allow refactoring shows pretty much how much you understood the concept
of a freeze.

This discussion is over from the release team's point of view. If you
are unhappy with the result, feel free to escalate it to the tech-ctte
or DPL.
