Lots of good discussion, and it's validating the approach currently
taken by mud-builder where this kind of thing is done as above. There
are trivial recipes for compiling simple upstream libraries, the
maintainer is set to a mailing list unless overridden etc.

Perhaps it is just process defintiion and automation which unsuitable?
I'd desperately love to hear opinions from anyone involved in other
auto-builders, particularly in the Debian/Ubuntu world. But... then...
I suppose we would generally for this thread.
