Do you remember we don't use sdist tarballs in Debian, but generate our
own from "git archive"? I don't want to change this workflow, especially
that we plan to build packages from git trunk, meaning we'll need to
build on each commit. So please don't design your fix around using sdist
tarballs, which by the way, add a lot of metadata which aren't desirable.
