Now I have shown the code and nobody read that.

The single-file format is not mandatory, and two convertion tools
enables zero-cost convertion:

And the prototype implementation is compatible to the traditional debian/
directory. See https://github.com/dupr/DefaultCollection/tree/master/rover-traditional
for the example.

BOTH single-file format and traditional format are supported. People
could choose and use what they like.

I admit that I'm quite fond of the proposed single-file format, and
hence didn't mention and compatiblity with traditional format in design.

What else can I do? Both traditional and single-file formats  are
explicitly supported now.
