I'd like to keep the short-form dh packages

i think everybody now agrees that what we are discussing should be

rather not, as some of those packages have an RC-bug filed (FTBFS), so
we should fix that.

unfortunately the upstream Makefile of the said packages is broken.
since the upstream Makefile is essentially the same for all (your)
packages (though their are different generations, with recent enough
upstream Makefiles not exposing the problem) it would make sense to
further centralize this Makefile, so any problem could be fixed by
fixing this Makefile, rather than fixing 10 identical ones.

it would be good to find a workflow that fits both your needs and allows
for easy fixes of 'important' bugs.

I am not saying the same version of the same Makefile, obviously bugs should be fixed, and this Makefile can be, should be, and is often updated. What made the current thing hard to fix? This HURD/kFreeBSD build issue was going to be fixed upstream anyway, so I don't see the need to have a Debian-specific fix.
