My 2 cents:

1: Just in case you may be interested there is a short script
'pbuilder-satisfydepends-cupt' in the patch attached to #545794 that does
almost what you want;

2: If the list is passed to some package tool, I see no reason to
introduce/depend on some another functionality by dpkg. Just pass all
build-{depends,conflicts}[-indep] from the source file (like .dsc) and let
that tool handle it.
