> Amazingly enough (at least according to my interpretation of http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-source.html#s-substvars)
it is completely impossible to have the following 6 characters in Deb's package description:
> {noformat}
>  ${VAR}
> {noformat}
> Oozie is one package that wants it. At this point my only recourse is to change it into
something else (even though it will be slightly less useful as far as Oozie is concerned)
