File::Remove::remove removes files and directories.  It acts like
/bin/rm, for the most part.  Although unlink can be given a list
of files, it will not remove directories; this module remedies that.
It also accepts wildcards, * and ?, as arguments for filenames.

quilt patch system.

- Add quilt (>= 0.46-7) to Build-Depends.
- Bump versioned Build-Depends on debhelper to (>= 7.0.8).

5.8.8-7 is in oldstable.
