I'm trying to CDBSise some of my packages, but I found a big problem:
in some places i can't rely completely on debhelper. I have lines in
debian/rules that rename files, but dh_install (or dh_movefiles) is
uncapable of renaming, it only moves.

Are you aware of any debhelper command for renaming files?
