I have to think about it in the context of quantum mechanics ;)

I just don't know what I was thinking about while working on this
package. You're absolutely right - $gnewsense_dists is much better
name (and doesn't need a lot of typing ;)). I had some plan with
longer names (changing ubuntu_regex to ubuntu_dists_regex) but totally
forgot about it. Sticking to short names is better anyway.

Speaking of quilt - using it was simply stupid. I haven't changed
soures format even. Have to check my tea ;)

Anyway, here is corrected version of lintian:
Could you download it again? Is this approach better?
