This looks good to commit. It'd be nice to have something that would
handle something called policy-enforcer (ie, make monodis explicitly say
"this is a policy module"). Not sure how that would be done.

One other minor issue is that somebody might want to say Build-Depends:
mono(gtk-sharp) = The policy thing doesn't really provide
gtk-sharp 2.4 for building (because the resulting assembly will depend
on another version).
