Of course, DDs will do better :-)

But it tests binary packages, so somehow those are built.  One could
also add the requirement of adding a build log to the test protocol.

'-v'/'--verbose' could be hard-coded in the test script.  People
could always fake, forge, and fraud, but that's just an FTBFS.
