Hmmm there were only 2 revisions of quilt's .pc dir format as far as I
know and it doesn't look like they gonna change it again anytime soon.
And there is strong collaboration between dpkg & quilt maintainers in
Debian. Quilt source package depends on dpkg full compatibility with
quilt, because quilt patch series are used to patch upstream quilt for
a debian release.
Incompatible quilt will never be released in Debian without dpkg
supporting new .pc dir format.
