OK, yes we can patch Debian like this. Though, please also change the pdftex 
source in version control.

Hopefully the next release isn't *too* far ahead - Debian is doing this in most 
depth at the moment, but other distributions are also following suit - FreeBSD, 
LEDE, SUSE and Guix already added support for SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH, and we know 
there's people working on it for Fedora and NixOS.
