Control: affects -1 publicsuffix

I think debian should offer publicsuffix via stable-updates.

publicsuffix ships a file that is updated semi-regularly to reflect the
state of the network (a list of all DNS domains which members of the
public might be able to register immediate subzones).  It's used for
HTTP cookie policy and for X.509 wildcard certificate issuance, among
other uses.

In this way, it's similar to tzdata.

I've prepared a "jessie" branch on the debian packaging repo, which
currently builds fine on stable, and is a simple package:

The only difference in the resultant package (beyond the updated data)
is that the version in jessie (20140902-1) ships with only the legacy
location for the data file
(/usr/share/publicsuffix/effective_tld_names.dat) while the updated
file ships that as a symlink to the modern location of the file

Any concerns if i upload this to proposed-updates with an eye toward
