I like this one.
So ok, let me propose this:
With rebuilds, it's the library maintainer's job to find all dep packages.
There are then two choices:
* build everything yourself, if you feel like it (yay!)
* make a todolist and post on the arch-dev-public ML so we know
that there is a new rebuild todolist.
Sound like a good process?
