That only works if you would just install/purge the difference between
Build-Depends of the last and next build. The official buildds don't
do that.

My local, experimental buildd includes this in the API but for lack of
time the current "update-build-depends <dist> <old-package=version>
<new-package=version>" script just does purge all old, install all new
(and on amd64 I rarely care).

I also have a ToDo item to give out packages to buildds in groups with
overlapping Build-Depends so as to take advantage of the above. So a
buildd asking for things to build would get item 1, 3 and 7, all being
kde packages, instead of 1, 2 and 3. But that's just an idea for now.
