I'd just like to echo this sentiment.  I take the source home to
compile for m68k on floppy disk and if I had to take home a whole new
binutils|gdb|tetex|glibc|whatever every time there was a new Debian
revision, the number of m68k packages I'd compile would drop

(Especially when people do stuff like release a new Debian revision
where the only change is the maintainer's email address.)
