I tend to use "debuild" from devscripts, primarily because it
automatically runs lintian. If dpkg-buildpackage gained native support
for invoking lintian, it could do so on the unfiltered changes file, and
then emit the filtered changes file. Would you consider including
support for that in dpkg-buildpackage?
