OK, thanks.

Alright. Two things we could do:
 - set up something to notice changes in those packages, so that we
   don't forget to rebuild (easy change, possibly a burden).
 - implement udeb addition (heavier change, possibly important size
   increase, no burden in the long run).

I guess investigating the second is what we want to do, but I won't
be able to do that in the upcoming days. If nobody has time to do that
right now, we could fall back to the first one.
