Correct, it only checks whether the build-depends are satisfiable as
specified in the build-depends header. That is, only if a package
declares it needs foo (>= latest version) will that package be moved to
BD-Uninstallable until that's been built.

If it ever matters, you can use dep-wait (not BD-Uninstallable, that's
managed automatically) and/or build priorities.

Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy requires you
to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once, add a voucher, and
save on postage.
