AFAIR it is irrelevant how the directory in .orig.tar.gz is named,
since dpkg-source uses patch -p1 (or some other method) to bypass it.
However it is important that the .orig.tar.gz unpacks into one directory,
there were some bugs filed on how dpkg can't handle archives that
unpack their contents in the current directory.
