Actually, I'd agree with you if not for one small problem: one has to build
a package to know if it will break or not.

This means we'll have to hunt down every autoconf-using package in Debian,
test-build them, and fix them if they break (sometimes this implies tracking
down build-dependencies, which is not always a straightforward process).
We'd be risking releasing a lot of packages in a sorry state of quality
(cannot build from source) in Woody otherwise.
