I’ve glanced at the list referenced.

Some things that immediately come to mind:

To be completely fair, you should repeat the very same source
package builds, with the very same archive snapshot in use
(actually, for rebuilds like this, using snapshot.d.o as the
*only* entry in sources.list, for both deb and deb-src, is
the way to go) as during the initial rebuild against the new
dash version, to diff failures.

(Or rebuild stock archive first, filter out failures, then
rebuild what built.)

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.	-- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
