lintian 1.23.42

There's still more work that could be done, but the changelog was up to 148 lines, so it was time to get the release out. One of the bugs fixed was rather annoying, and in any change this large I will have broken something or other. So it's time to get broader testing.

It's amazing how much stuff there is to do on lintian on an ongoing basis. There are always little changes and fixes to help it understand packages better, and it's wonderfully rewarding to work on even without making major architectural changes. Although I still do want to find time to do that at some point.

I expect there will be additional releases before this package makes it into testing, both to fix the inevitable bugs and to clean out more of the bug backlog.
