Well, things are like this right now precisely because people wanted to 
avoid what you are proposing. I would be quite sad if every time I push a 
new branch I had to wait for the container to be rebuilt. Also note that 
this is how other projects based on wayland/ci-templates work, including 
the rest of mesa.

As I said, you can easily do that atm by just updating DEBIAN_TAG.

But, why is that such a problem?
