What makes your sure that "most of us" do it like that? I for example
don't have them because I work on my packages from multiple machines. So
I always do a fresh checkout (that way I always get a up2date common
directory, too).

And in any case: "- instead of "6.": build the modified packages
yourself -- chances are quite low that somebody will notice it" remains.
