Thanks. However, since I have changed a bit this patch for v7, I will
not include your Reviewed-by.

I understand your proposal. However, I think that it's premature to
introduce such a hook mechanism: for now there's only one such fixup to
do. Let's wait until we have a few.

I have moved the code outside of the package step, into a helper
function. It looks a bit nicer, and perhaps if we need to do other
fixups this helper function can be extended to be the one doing all the
per-package related fixups.

What do you think ?
