As far as I understood Lucas is talking about a patched lintian and

  grep -R "should switch to dh" /usr/share/lintian/*

has no results so this warning is not part of lintian.  Similarly

    prottest (U)         should switch to dh. Current build system: debhelper (source version: 3.4.2+dfsg-3)
    python-pyfaidx (U)   should switch to dh. Current build system: debhelper (source version: 0.5.5.2-1)

are false positives of this lintian fork.

Kind regards

      Andreas.
