This is ridiculous.

The worst that can happen is that packages built with the new dpkg-dev no
longer support DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=noopt and are built with upstream's
default flags instead of "-O2 -g". There are almost no packages in squeeze
which are using dpkg-buildflags properly so the introduction of hardening
flags has no effect except on the backported packages which are explicitly
using it (and are ready for it).
