Okay, I see what you mean. I support my suggestion was actually quite radical: adding those two lines to d/source/options for every package you maintain a delta for. In that case, the merges would be easy (a simple helper script that ensured the lines were present post-merge) and you wouldn't need README.source because everyone would know that was how things worked. But that would be a massive social change! -- Sean Whitton
