this discussion has stalled yet again.
Thomas' blog post reminded me that I promised to voice my support
for this idea (matter of fact, I proposed it myself, in the past)
during DebConf13, but failed to do so.
Consider this remedied, now ;)
I can see the argument that this is extra work and not supported, yet.
But the former can be worked around with good documentation and best
practices, the latter is a bit of a fallacy and mainly chicken vs egg.
I would be very happy to help hammer out any such text, assuming
there's a reasonable chance of adoption.
