As part of this I also plan some refactoring of how lists of official
fields allowed in {dsc,deb,changes} are managed, some initial ideas
were expressed in

Work will also continue to fix dpkg-dev's bugs and some might have a broad

- we need to find an acceptable way to provide default values to build
  flags (CFLAGS and al.), given the last discussion it's probably
  by implementing a new dpkg-buildflags tool.
  Related to: #489771

- we need to allow usage of build-arch/build-indep rules for the few
  packages that would really benefit from it
  Tracked in: #229357

- the format of changes files might evolve, two bugs could imply such a
  #138409: adding build-environment info in .changes
  #65699: let dpkg-buildpackage generate a log file (and possibly upload
  it together with the packages)
  the latter is less likely if we switch to rebuild on all architectures
  (and hence scratch the maintainer uploaded .deb)
