Yeah, I know. It definitely looks hard. The benefit would be that e.g.,
you could select CDT from P2 and have it pick up the gcc / build-essential
dependencies by itself.

But given the current (almost complete) lack of resources I doubt this
can happen, perhaps in the future, after I 'm done with school, army
and all :)

So, It is almost certain that we should pick the dropins mechanism
as well, at least for the near future.
