Ah, OK.  That also explains why I sometimes (rarely) got a lintian
warning about "patch system but direct changes in diff.gz"... which I
was unable to reproduce, and so had written off as a fluke.  Turns out
it was happening only if I did debuild and then debuild -S -sa --
because the debuild modified Makefile.in before the source package files
were built!

I'll feed this improved patch into bzr.

It seems the very latest bibledit under development no longer needs all
the "extra" bibledit-* executables... and therefore we could get rid of
the associated man pages... but that version is not released yet :)
