Yes, that's something of a shame.
Unfortunately I think the filename in ml is somewhat tied into the
module structure, so it cannot be changed without renaming the file.
What do you recommend?
If we were to regenerate the diff in the "git" style, so it represents
the renames usefully would dpkg-source 3.0 (quilt) cope?
We could modify the files in place and mv or ln to the correct name in
debian/rules but that seems a bit gross.
