yeah, it's preference: I don't like to have more entries for a single
"series of changes", between the version in the archive and the
proposed version. Both are technically correct, but may change from
sponsor to sponsor.

When you upload a package to ftp-master, there are 2 possibilities,
it's ACCEPTED (hence included in the debian archive) or it's REJECTED.
In the latter case, you can reupload the same revision, since from
archice POV that revision never existed, so it's ok.

mh, distclean is not a target of debian/rules; what I suggest is using
clean: clean-patched unpatch
<do the real clean stuff>
you can take a look at .
After this fast fix, all should be ok; sorry if it takes another
iteration, because I make it not clear enough from the beginning.
