We test-build the thing in dh_auto_test (with "cargo build") and it breaks otherwise.

I do think it's good to do it even for "cargo install" because compiler warnings change and I don't want that to break old crates. For well-maintained crates it's a useful signal for the crate developer, but it's a hindrance for us when the crate gets old and we have a newer compiler.
