Nice, although it's not new evidence we need :). The state of last
discussion on the matter is that there is consensus in going ahead, here
are a couple of pointers:

- https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2011/04/msg00840.html
- https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2011/06/msg00000.html

Sure, where are your dak patches implementing it? :)

Note: I don't want to smash down the discussion with a lame "show me the
code" argument. But I do want to avoid the impression that "we're unable
to decide" when I fact, in this case, we are and we did. But that's,
unfortunately, not enough to make appear out of thin area the code
implementing the decision.

Cheers.
