Debian testing already includes dpkg (>> 1.17.2) so dpkg should support the
required bits in jessie.

I didnt know that pbuilder was used? Do the buildds not use sbuild instead?
The reason that I didnt write a patch for pbuilder yet is only because parsing
the Build-Depends syntax in bash does not look very pleasant to my eyes :) Is
pbuilder support needed for the buildds? Then I put the pbuilder patch higher
on my list of priorities.
