Just to expound a bit more:
Whilst I really like hacking on strip-nondeterminsm I feel it might
hold back the Reproducible Builds effort in general by hiding the full
impact of issues.
Its certainly not a Debian-specific tool per se but I feel like it could
be fairly labelled as such in an informal context ("Debian run this tool",
etc.) which isn't excellent marketing for widespread adoption.
It also mean that any distribution that (for whatever reason) cannot use
it will be exposed to a whole bunch of issues that we are not working on
because they are "fixed" by strip-nondeterminism.
