Please sync python-debian (universe) from Debian unstable (main).

Explanation of the Ubuntu delta and why it can be dropped:
Please sync version 0.1.5 (currently debian/incoming). Package now builds and works fine with python2.5, tested manually, ubuntu changes are not necessary anymore

Changelog since current gutsy version 0.1.3ubuntu1:

python-debian (0.1.4) unstable; urgency=low

  [ James Westby ]
  * changelog.py
    - Add allow_empty_author option to changelog to allow the author line
      to have no information.

  [ Stefano Zacchiroli ]
  * debian/control
    - joining the team: add myself as an uploader
    - add Vcs-Bzr field pointing to our Bzr repository on bzr.debian.org
  * arfile.py / debfile.py
    - new modules implementing (read-only) dpkg-deb like access to .deb
      packages; when possible, access to information contained in .deb is made
      available via other debian_bundle classes (e.g. Changelog, Deb822, ...)
    - code contributed by Stefano Zacchiroli and Filippo Giunchedi
    - corresponding examples in examples/debfile
  * debian_support.py
    - yield dictionaries instead of tuples in Packages parsing and normalize
      to lower case 822 field names (Closes: #431087)
    - no longer require a space after a ':' in RFC 822 fields; fix bogus
      parse errors of Packages-like file with PackageFile() class
  * examples/
    - added grep-maintainer example to show the Packages parsing API

  [ John Wright ]
  * debian_bundle/deb822.py, debian_bundle/test_deb822.py, deb822.py:
    - Import latest version of deb822, and create a "dummy" top-level module
      for compatibility
    - For multiline fields that start with a newline (e.g. Files in a .dsc,
      MD5Sum in Release files), the line with the "Field:" should not end in
      trailing whitespace.  Fixed and added test cases.
  * setup.py:
    - The version wasn't getting updated, so I've renamed it to setup.py.in,
      and added a __CHANGELOG_VERSION__ placeholder
  * debian/rules:
    - Generate generate setup.py from setup.py.in, filling in the version
      information from debian/changelog
    - No longer delete deb822 files
  * debian/control:
    - Add myself as an uploader
    - Add Provides, Conflicts, and Replaces fields for python-deb822
    - When describing features, mention which modules they are implemented in
  * HISTORY.deb822, debian/docs:
    - Install old changelog for deb822 as
  * debian_bundle/changelog.py:
    - Accept numbers, '+', and '.' in the distribution field, to match dpkg's
