I have an idea related to this:
Since debian/rules has to be executable, we can change the policy ("only
the wording, not the spirit") and allow it to be a shell script, *as long
as it behaves as if it were a Makefile*.
We could then write something like:
[ ... ]
and use bash macro definitions from "debmakelib" or whatever.
I think this would add some flexibility.
