I think that would be a mistake. It would make the backporting life
miserable. Or alternatively, it would be fairly useless because if you
rebuild the package with an old version of cdbs, it will just overwrite
the versioned dependency with an older versioned dependency. This is
an argument for not relying on automatic control file management and
for just writing in the dependencies that you really meant to use.
