        Rubbish.  I suspect all cdbs using packages can be similarly
 tweaked (or any packages that use my build system).

        Also, It is indeed trivial to add that to non-helper-package
 using packages, it just requires some editing (just like modufying
 helper packages will need editing). I do not  find edting a rules file
 to be non-trivial, so far. (thank the lord for the one true editor).

        I agree it is very non trivial for debhelper to change packages
 that do not use it; but that was never something to shoot for.
