Yes.  It is run after the package archives have been built and after
pymaemo-optify has done its thing.  So maybe it is best just to look for
the effect that pymaemo-optify has.  Maybe pymaemo-optify could even
just "echo none >debian/optify"...  I'll have to have a closer look at
how pymaemo-optify actually works...

(We should also think about folding pymaemo-optify into maemo-optify
completely, but that can be done later as well.)

Yeah, I was thinking of that, too...  Maybe it is indeed good enough.

Well, the direct dependency check wouldn't do anything useful anymore,
or would it?  (I.e., has-dependency || pymaemo-optify-is-installed ==
