I tentatively think the idea is good; I don't really care about the
name :)

The problem might be that the set of packages is not
trivial/uncontroversial; I'm not sure I need cdbs (or cmake), I've
never heard about bzr-builddeb, I miss cowbuilder (and also
svn-buildpackage and git-buildpackage, and maybe dh-make) ... So yes,
the idea is interesting, but the selection of packages might need
some consideration :)
