Yep, and it works.  (I just built a little mini-repository and ran the 
script on it.) The result:

-------------------

Recall:
since libncurses5 and libncurses6 are actually generated from source 
packages whose archive name differs from their own, I've created tiny 
"source" archives for them that just contain a README pointing to the 
correct source.

If there are no serious objections, I think I'll go with this.
