I just nee to trust you here.

Hmmm, I once had the idea that some "Build-Depends: source-package"
would be somehow handy - but this does not exist unfortunately.  For my
gut feeling if you can cope with only a few source packages this could
be possibly more acceptable for ftpmaster.  However, I hope you might
be able to follow the library idea in the (far) future.

Kind regards
