except that you also would need to patch sbuild to build from
experimental. I've been giving that patch to everyone who's asked me for
it, but it's not in the official sbuild (the one used by machines
building for unstable) because Ryan didn't like some of the things it
did (for very good reasons, BTW -- it slows down building on all
distributions for things that only benefit experimental)
