Yes, I've asked Frank if he'd pass over upstream to someone else. No
response so far IIRC.

Yay, thanks! I really didn't want to go back to dpkg-parsechangelog
which would pull in whole dpkg-dev.

Looks fine on a first glance. I though nowadays would probably replace
"-e" with "-E". But that's details.

But seeq also my reply to your mail in the thread of
https://bugs.debian.org/933128 — waiting for a reply there before
continuing here...
