I really don't see the point of including the debian build support in
the bk repository.  It's just as easy for anybody who wants to build
updated packages to apt-get source the debian build infrastructure and
then make that use an updated source tarball.  Maybe the debian build
support could have an option to point it at a local bk tree instead of
using a source tarball.
