That was impressively fast, thank you!

That said, I'm worried about two things:

1. debhelper (>= 9) is not going to be satisfiable, so this will cause at 
least the package I'm looking at to have gone from just incomplete 
build-dependencies to being unbuildable. Is the right thing to do to 
CDBS_BUILD_DEPENDS_rules_debhelper_v9 manually in debian/rules? In any 
case, I wonder if any packages currently in unstable/testing will FTBFS 

2. Dropping the versioned build-dependencies on debhelper (>= 6) and (>= 
7.0.1) is probably going to get you more complaints along the lines of 
http://bugs.debian.org/537240 :-)

For me I care about the second point less, since the oldest thing I have 
to support (Hardy) has debhelper 7.0.13 in backports. Since it's a known 
difference-of-opinion with Lintian and not unintentional, that's fine.
