I've only recently discovered --package-merge, so I'm sad that it's been taken away from me so soon :)

This was lp:ubuntu/rpcbind -rtag:0.2.0-6ubuntu1. I figured out afterwards that it was a mistake to use --package-merge (I was trying to get around an archive reject caused by bug #810531), so it probably shouldn't do anything sensible here, but a clearer error message would be nice.
