OK, I committed these to the old-stable branch and merged in the
bdist_deb changes to the master branch. I made some minor changes to
your option to disable --single-version..., the most significant of
which is the name, which is now "--disable..." instead of "--ignore...".
The other is that I'm not using env vars in the debian/rules file -- it
just clutters it up unnecessarily.

I still wonder if the (now named) --disable-single-version... option
actually solves your problem -- you _are_ importing setuptools in the
same line, so I am mystified by this. But anyhow it's now in there and I
don't think it'll cause anyone any harm because it's unlikely they'll
use the option.

I'll probably let this stuff settle for a day or two and then cut new
stdeb releases (0.3.2 and 0.4.1).
