All true. But the current situation is similar. I may ask
Mr. build-machine-admin to install package X that conflicts with
package Y that someone else needs. If Mr. admin is not aware
that Y is currently in use, someone is unhappy.
My suspicion is that this won't happen often enough to worry about.
Once it does happen often enough, a more complex solution -- perhaps
involving pbuilder -- could be instituted.
