That is, if you branch, make a change, do a build, see it worked, do a
clean, then want to commit your change, you don't have config/sub diffs
in your commit (or have to fix them by hand for each feature add). Also,
if <state 0> -> build -> <state 1> -> clean -> <state 2> and state 0 !=
2, there's the potential for "not the same two builds in a row", which
afaik is a QA goal for lenny.
But I haven't seen anyone actually do this in packages, so I'd love to
hear people's opinions on the matter.
