Oh, I doubt that that is a clearly defined interface.

In any case, the purpose of CDBS is to abstract "common" build practice, not 
to store experimental hacks.  So you are invited to work with your generation 
method, but until it has found some wider acceptance, it has no place in cdbs 
by definition.
