.... urrrmmm, not really. The point here is also the extra need of
some language-specific tool which do not appear as lintian
dependency. So, even if I've a sympathy for your proposal,
reproducibility will not be ensured unless your field also specify
which extra package to install to support the required lintian
"plugin". But at that point it can be argued that we are getting a bit
overkilling ...
