Definitely, and planned (#476221) to be fixed pretty soon. But the
problem is that this can not be enabled by default (only through an
option initially, until the upper layers rely on a dpkg-buildpackage
with such option and use it) because the different tools might fight
over the file and might either truncate it or write duplicate data,
etc. Using a different path might be an issue for builds producing
huge log files.
