that's exactly the problem I'm facing for a migration of dpatch to quilt
I'm working on. There is no possible solution to execute any code/rules
target before a 3.0 source package applies patches, right?
Given that, I'd need to --skip-patches and use quilt on my own again,
there is no smarter way then which makes the migration to 3.0/quilt not
really an improvement.
On the other hand, if dpkg would support a rules target to be executed
before applying patches, that would be a great improvement. Or,
alternatively most patches-which-are-scripts could be avoided if quilt
had better support for removing/copying/renaming files.
