 After re-reading the bug, I'm not sure how the solution you propose
 would solve the issue: codegen generates code dynamically, and I don't
 see how it would "gain conscience" that it is being used from within a
 Debian build and hence should set some substvar.

 Do you have pointers to the solution you've proposed and how I would
 use it?
