 Patch works for me. Packages in votes seem ordered correctly.


 As an almost off-topic matter, the code managing packages for consensuses
 and votes seems to be of particularly low quality. See
 `compute_consensus_package_lines()` doing ad-hoc parsing.  And see
 `validate_recommended_package_line()` doing more ad-hoc parsing and having
 wrong return value patterns. Fortunately, both of them are weakly tested
 in the unittests. Maybe we should do something about these functions....
