[buildd-tools-devel] Bug#528312: Please add option to skip removal of installed Build-Depends

I use sbuild with schroot-managed filesystems (snapshots via LVM,
ZFS-over-iSCSI). It would be nice if a flag could be made so that sbuild
won't waste time trying to clean up installed Build-Depends after
For a failed build, it lets me chroot in manually and start hacking in
the build dir to discover/fix bugs. For successful builds, destroying
the snapshot is faster than waiting for "apt-get remove foo bar" to finish
(and then having to destroy the snapshot afterward, anyways).
Apologies if something like this is already in the git tree, I didn't
notice anything like this proposed feature.
This would probably interfere with the "Build needed x time, y disk
space" calculations sbuild displays - I imagine users of this flag wouldn't
care about that.
