There is already a bug report:

Some month ago a worked [1] on a clean apt-build solution (usage of the
APT (Python-)API rather than wrapping around apt-get/aptitude) but it
resulted in rewriting APT in Python with some additional features
(related to building packages/managing source packages and local
repository etc.) so I stopped working on it. (There are also some
limitations in current Python-API.)
Perhaps the future of apt-build is improvement of the "--build" switch
of apt-get.
