Using a pbuilder hook to test install/remove process

Howdy all,

I'm trying to make more use of ‘pbuilder’ hooks for automating the
testing of my packages.

Does it make sense to use a hook to install and remove the package
after it is built? The plus side is this would test that the
{pre,post}{inst,rm} programs run successfully. What are the negatives
of this approach?
