For common patch systems like dpatch or quilt, I guess I don't see what I
learn from this that I can't already learn from a quick glance at the
build-dep line in debian/control.
For obscure/unique systems, I think it's sensible, but I didn't think this
proposal was meant to address neophyte packagers, but people like the
security team that are familiar with common/standard tools.
