Python-DSV is an alternative to Python's standard csv module, with
somewhat different usage and optional support for wxWidgets-mediated
user interaction in the course of format autodetection.  Like the
standard module, it supports a wide range of delimiters and handles
both import and export.

* Fix typo in XS-Vcs-Svn: control field (misconverted from +ssh version)
[Aaron M. Ucko]
* debian/patches/02-wx-namespace-transition.patch (new, via Joe Pham
<>): use the modern wx package rather than the
clunkier wxPython package, which wxWidgets 2.8 will no longer provide.
* debian/patches/03-avoid-unicoditis.patch (new): Try to convert Unicode
delimiters back to ASCII (wxPython can be overenthusiastic), but
ultimately support either.

* Patch indirectly, via CDBS's simple patch system, in preparation
for switching to pure merge-with-upstream mode per DPMT conventions.
