But so, do you think the first step lies in pbuilder/sbuild to decide an
interface for the package maintainers to use, or for the buildd managers
(wanna-build/buildd and launchpad) to decide on an interface that
sbuild needs to provide (and I would guess pbuilder will try to copy it
for consistency).

In the first case, it would mean me and Josh needs to think about
something, probably including Neils in case debhelper can help
maintainers do stuff (this is the reason I thought that the whole
debian/.build thing was a good idea).
I know I tried to catch Josh attention via IRC in the past, but he was
also basically lost on how to tackle this matter.

In the latter case, it would basically mean that Aurelien and Colin
needs to think together instead.
