I have none here so I'd still appreciate one...

Huh? It's still just textual substitution.

But I agree that it happens 'too late', after the build.

Then I am /much/ less interested in the patch as it doesn't really help with
the workflow for the maintainer.  We're going from a manual edit of two
fields on a file to one. Still leaves us needing to open/edit the file.

A tool to more easily set the Build-Depends would be of use.
