A set of methods to manipulate debian/rules

Registered by Vadim Peretokin on 2009-07-02

Need a functions in the core that the plugins can call to programatically modify the debian/rules override rules.

Methods needed:
a) Check if a certain override rule exists
b) Retrieve the commands of an override rule
c) Add their own
d) anything else?

Whiteboard

one particular way to go about this could be simply have a class with a key-pair list (key being the override rule name, data the content of the rule), and have the methods operate on the private list.
