dpkg-dev introduced a generic solution for binNMUs that doesn't hardcode
the requirement to use a "+bX" suffix. All you have to do is to add
a "binary-only=yes" keyword in the changelog header line like this:
ftplib (3.1-1-9+b1) unstable; urgency=low, binary-only=yes

They do work but they spit out a somewhat annoying warning about an
unknown keyword. We might do a stable update to fix this if if it's
allowed by the SRM.
Will older versions of dpkg work with the new binary-only> keyword (i.e. ignore it)? Or will we need to do a dpkg
version check and do this conditionally?
