* Allow individual debhelper programs to define their own special options
by passing a hash to init(), which is later passed on the Getopt::Long.
Closes: #370823
+ * Move many command-specific options to only be accepted by the command
+ that uses them. Affected options are:
+ -x, -r, -R, -l, -L, -m,
+ --include-conffiles, --no-restart-on-upgrade, --no-start,
+ --restart-after-upgrade, --init-script, --filename, --flavor, --autodest,
+ --libpackage, --add-udeb, --dpkg-shlibdeps-params,

+ --dirs-only, --keep-debug, --version-info, --list-missing, --fail-missing,
+ --language, --until, --after, --before, --remaining, --with
+ * If any third-party debhelper commands use any of the above options,
+ they will be broken, and need to be changed to pass options to init().
+ * To avoid breaking rules files that pass options to commands that do not
+ use them, debhelper will now only warn if it encounters an unknown
+ option. This will be converted back to an error later.
