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.
