thats what I thought. In summary: It is not possible to move common
control-related logic into a central package like haskell-devscripts that
allows for changes in debian/control to be effected without a change to
individual source packages (e.g. by uploading the source unmodified, or a
hypothetical source-nmu). (This is not a complaint, just an observation.)
