That would make sense. :)

On a related note, I have been in contact with upstream (lintian) and they see the value of having a more flexible version of their software that can be used by other distros that are debian like. This means that we can potentially get a lot of QA checks for free and turn off those that are irrelevant. 

I am trying to stay up to date with lintian so hopefully we'll see more integration from lintian into maemian now that upstream is onboard.
