Personally, I don't see that we need to support building Debian packages
on systems (including file systems) that don't support Unix semantics.
If we can fix building for AFS by merely changing find, good, but
requiring changes to all, many, or even any packaging scripts because of
this sounds like a bad idea to me.
Even a bad picture is worth 500 words. --Droidy
