He replied, and the answer was that this is already
possible. There is a last argument that can be a specific
script name; in which case that is used as the script
instead of the default "sid/woody/potato" script for
building a sid/woody/potato dist as specified by the
dist argument.

Is the need for this in pbuilder unique to myself
or should it be a generally accessible feature? The problem
is, it would require Yet Another Argument to pbuilder.
