I just wanted to point out that line extends dh_install. From the manpage:

"The purpose of the program is to extend dh_install(1)'s functionality,
 by allowing to specify a destination filename.

This can be accomplished by a special syntax: the " => " mark between a
source and a destination means that the source file should be installed
with the specified destination name."

Lintian is supposed to pick up on if you are using it superfluously
