    I'd like to advocate that this script either be the application of
the watch file, or a get-orig-source rule in debian/rules, rather than
a seprarately maintained script.  On the other hand, I like having an
orig.tar.gz available in a common location, as this make it easy to
preserve state when there is a repack (e.g. upstream is a zip file).
