This thing is just plain *great* !

However, I see one drawback: right now, you have to build twice; once to
find out build-dependencies, and once to get a controlfile with correct

It would be even more great if you could let this behave the way
dpkg-shlibdeps does, i.e. let it write information to a file that can be
merged with the controlfile at buildtime.
