Hi again,

It seems that making debian/rules a symbolic link to /usr/bin/dh might actually
work for some packages (although I have not yet tried), so it could be the
perfect timing to double-think whether it is not as heretic as it looks, as
long as it would follow the Policy requirements about the expected result of
"debian/rules clean build binary" (and binary-arch and binary-indep if the
ongoing discussion does not end up in their deprecation).

Have a nice day,
