Sorry, I don't understand what you mean here. :) Can you rephrase?
if I understand you right, this lintian warning will be triggered by any

This is fine and I also don't need an exception for "my" *.patch_back.
I filed this wishlist bug because I wrongly thought that there is some
kind of whitelist for such not needed files.
Does that make more sense?
