executable config files. bleh, argh
Debhelper config files may be made executable programs that output the desired configuration. No further changes are planned to the config file format; those needing powerful syntaxes may now use a programming language of their choice. In many bugs I see a tendency of users wanting debhelper configuration files to have their pet feature from some programming language. So I choose to short-circuit this process by taking it to its logical conclusion, and without the bother of developing a new language myself. [ Is this consistent with my boycott/disinterest in integrating features features first developed in Ubuntu? Yes. Instead of blocking the issue of multiarch needing variable expansions, I have stepped back and let anyone make whatever mess they desire while not forcing that mess on the rest of us. ]
