IMO, this kind of situations warrant changes of the original source
outside the debian dir, so that the source is in a sane state. OTOH,
care must be taken since changes outside of debian/ can lead to weird
situations when a new source would contain the old patched file(s) if
the version bump after a new upstream release is not handled properly
(AFAIK svn-upgrade should do the right thing).
