I would like to propose that the debian/rules file is allowed to be
non-makefile. Any kind of a program that can do the required stuff can be a
debian/rules file. We shouldn't prohibit it when someone e.g. writes a short
shell script or another interpreted script, as long as it works.

Note: This proposal is not meant to spur use of non-makefile debian/rules
files, and if it passes, I don't think it really will. It is just meant to
allow them, for the minority of cases.
