I still think sbuild is the way to go. Since it already handles local
overrides, downloading/installing/removing packages needed to do the building
as well as removing/installing packages that were shifted from the Build-*
deps once the build is complete.
On top of that, it can download the sources by specific version and
distribution and it's already well tested and proven.
