i've migrated many of my packages from cdbs to dh, but there's one
feature which cdbs sports and which i miss strongly (at least: the last
time i checked) in dh (so much, that i haven't converted a couple of
packages): building of multiple "flavours".
that is: building the same code-base multiple times, with differing
configurations.

while it is possible to do that with dh, it amounts to either a lot of
near-duplicate lines or quite some GNU make trickery, which i'd rather
not spread across multiple d/rules
