This is actually the patch that Lennart calls "an outright insult"...
and based on the link in his blog he's absolutely right; that change is
ridiculous and, as a maintainer of a free software package myself, if
someone modified my code like that in a major distribution like Ubuntu
I'd be P.O.'d as well.  I'm sure Daniel does great work most of the
time, but this change looks like a dud to me.
