Re: Bug#41232: debian-policy: [PROPOSAL] Build-time dependencies on binary packages

Look good, except for one thing.  How would you handle the case where
debian/control is generated from debian/control.in?  dpkg-buildpackage would
not be able to check for dependencies in this case, until control is
generated, but you can't call debian/rules to build control until you have
checked dependencies.  A typical chicken/egg problem.
