The problem is: who wants to support what and what for ?  I thought that the
release goal was to harden Debian, not to fine-grain makefiles in general.

What I see here is a system that is generous of other people's time.

If people who are interested by improving our dozens of thousands upstream
makefiles could spend time forwarding patches upstream by themselves, that
would be appreciated.  I have a hard time finding convincing words when I think
the patch is borderline useless.
