Maybe this can be achieved by tweaking the deb-layout files
svn-buildpackage creates? I also think to recall that the docs to
svn-buildpackage once mentioned a "directory structure switch" that
would allow to select the layout you proposed. In that case, a kind
request to Eduard Bloch might help.
Personally, I like your layout there.
BTW, I just made you Project Admin on the alioth project, too. And don't
pretend you don't deserve it :-)
