Hello Lars,
I am using a modified version of piuparts quite extensively.
I am certainly interested helping with piuparts but I am not confident
I understand where you would like the project to go.

I used a modified version that only check for a small number of problems
 and which is able to process a hundred of packages at once to make
finding and reporting of bug easier.

Is it not possible to run piuparts in a sid chroot ? This is what I do
in my setup.
