I got the impression that sbuild is winning over pbuilder BICBW.
dgit doesn't know how to invoke pbuilder. It probably should.
 For various reasons it is a good idea to run your build tool via
dgit if you intend to use dgit to push. One is this trouble with
ignore lists; another is that with `3.0 (quilt)' someone has to do a
dpkg-source commit and dgit knows how to do that. dgit currently
knows how to run dpkg-buildpackage (for both binaryfull and
source-only uploads), git-buildpackage, and sbuild.
