Never ever touch /home !
put the users in /var/lib/something
use adduser --system
don't manually check /etc/{passwd,group}, let adduser do this

use dh_links and debian/*.links to craete symlinks

changelog: /native format/d - we stay with 1.0

the debian/tmp things can probably be split out into a separate commit
and applied to the piuparts package without introducing piuparts-server
at the same time

use a current python helper to properly install the python modules and
let the helper figure out the python versions to use

You probably need Breaks/Replaces: piuparts (<= 0.44)

There needs to be a clean migration path for /etc/piuparts - piuparts
should not trigger piuparts problems itself :-)
