 Huh back.

 Two things:

    * I think it's safe to assume that autobuilders are reasonably

    * A package that doesn't build because the autobuilder is using a
      newer release of a build-dependency has been heard of.

    * (I can't count) Surely, if a package build-depends on a specific
      version of another package, the maintainer won't just hope that
      the autobuilder happens to have the correct version...
