Well if anyone is interested, I've started working on the issue with
git-buildpackage not being able to import just the debian directory. I
have a patch and submitted a bug report for git-buildpackage.
Feel free to improve on the patch if you wish. Next, I'll be working
on getting git-buildpackage to build a package from a repository with
the upstream files.
