Yes, that is exactly what I am talking about.  However, does it
actually _work_ to do a build of Debian?  The last time I tried, using
my own set of build-depends (created by what 'apt-get build' told me
it needed to have on hand to build), Debian couldn't build itself
from the ground up.  Maybe I will start that up again with the recent
bunch of unstable.
