Please implement something along these lines :)

since debian-edu's rules file is a one-line include on cdd-dev (now blends-dev), wouldn't this be more appropriate to implement in blends-dev?

then other packages built with those tools would also gain the benefit.

Thanks for raising awareness of this bug.

What I do for all the packages that I (co)maintain is to add the attached file as debian/cdbs/1/rules/buildinfo.mk and add the following line to debian/rules:

include debian/cdbs/1/rules/buildinfo.mk

Less is possible too. For those favoring custom maintaining more parts of their packaging routines over using CDBS.
