This has been discussed to some extent on one of the Debian mailing lists
(maybe debian-devel?).  I'm not sure there was much consensus out of the
discussion, other than perhaps we really need to work out what we'd want
such a verify feature to do exactly.  At the moment everybody seems to be
madly scrambling to get 1.2 out the door, so I don't think anybody has taken
it any further than that at this stage.
