I think what you're saying is that we *do* have the technical debt
already (in that we're not keeping track of what gets installed in a way
that dh knows about, vs. getting installed manually), and this patch
just exposes it :)

If you'd rather skip this for now and merge the rest of the series, i'm
happy to look into reducing the number of warnings later.

But in general, i'm not scared of introducing those warnings first --
hopefully having the warnings present will encourage someoneâ„¢ to fix
