that makes of course only sense, if submitted to upstream. If one
"fixes/improves" the Debian packages temporarily is, of course,
debatable. Especially for packages that are not that widely used
(e.g., OpenOffice compared to Poly/ML) I see this as a change of
testing opportunity.

Sorry for that. What I did was more or less: take the "rules"
generated by debhelper and comment the unnecessary dh_* calls
out. Probably, this is not the best strategy...
