I'll try, but I doubt that changes will be accepted by sbdmock author.

It would take a lot of time, I think.

I have another idea. If it doesn't work proper way let's make a hack

Autobuilder will run maemo-optify-deb after the build. It will be run
on garage, so anybody, who has root at garage can update package there.
How does it sound?
