I would really like to know who I need to bribe in order to get this to
happen.  I do not have a useful development environment at this time due to
my living situation, so unfortunately I cannot apply myself to thisk task

It is critical that we be able to at least satisfy build-dependencies within
a release, as a step toward guaranteeing buildability of packages within a
release.  This is important for prompt security updates, license compliance
and other good things.
