        I have done some experimentation with this, and I can say this
 is a definite feature. I updated my ./debian/common submodule with what
 I thought was a backwards compatible update, but it only happened to be
 backwards compatible for _some_ of my packages.  It was nice to still
 have buildable packages until I make the changes in each package to
 make them work with the new ./debian/common changes.

        Just another data point.

It is not well to be thought of as one who meekly submits to insolence
and intimidation.
