easier, but not as easy as
sudo apt-get build-dep foo; apt-get source foo; #hack; dpkg-buildpackage; sudo debi

As a Debian user, I rely on and enjoy being able to build Debian

configuring a build environment or changeroots. I agree with Bernhard
that we should pay attention not to lose that feature.
