How about this then: if you debuild without -b, -B, or -nc, it builds a
source package before building the binary packages.  What if it were to
build another source package afterwards, and compare the two .diff.gz
files?  Timestamps in the diff would be ignored.  But if the actual
file contents of the diff were different, that would IMO be a bug.
