Using this package is completely optional. I like it, because I don't have
to do this manually. With this helper, the package icon is not located in
two places (introducing the potential of being out-of-sync): in a file,
/and/ in a control file field.

If you have an icon debian/package-name.png, then
package-name_version_arch.deb will have the icon. the helper assumes that
debian/package-name.png is a 26x26 PNG file.
