It is optional already. Just don't make any direct changes to upstream files.
What else do you need?
I can add a new option "--no-debian-patch" that would refuse to create the
automatic quilt patch debian-changes-<ver> and make it fail instead if
there are upstream changes.
That option can then be put in debian/source/options just like you can put
"compression = bzip2" currently.
