Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.51
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

It would be nice to support a DEB_DH_INSTALL_<package> variable, wich would
enable us to pass different args to dh_install in cdbs (for example for using
-X on some packages, as you can't exclude in a debian/install file)

Attached (trivial) patch enables this behavior, but I dont know if variable
name is ok.
