May I make a gentle request to get this MR merged? It's been open for
about 5 months now, only affects the build system and is only to
handle cases where we have the stranger [foo=bar] arguments in
sources.list(5) entries, which is unlikely to be the case for any
official builds.

As I write in my latest comment on the MR, it is not *strictly*
blocking testing whether d-i images are reproducible, but it is making
it really rather difficult -- I'm using awful 140-line local shell
script, rather using our far-superior testing framework, and we have
likely been accumulating regressions since last time I was seriously
working on this.
