Thanks Vagrant, that's good to know (it matches my understanding too,
from searching around).

Roughly speaking, the reason I ask is to see whether it'd be possible
to reduce migration and maintenance burden (in terms of maintainer
time, primarily, although perhaps arguably also compute resources) by
providing information about no-longer-required build dependencies.

I'll spend some time at the metaphorical drawing board to see whether
something like this could make sense and how to integrate in a
non-disruptive way if so.
