Um, perhaps you mean debhelper v7? I think we should transition from
CDBS and normal verbose debhelper to debhelper v7, post-lenny.

dpkg-source v3 is about moving from .dsc+.diff.gz+.orig.tar.gz to
.dsc+.debian.tar.<ext>+orig.tar.<ext>+orig-foo.tar.<ext>. The
debian.tar.gz can contain patches that are automatically applied on
dpkg-source -x foo_1.2-3.dsc. See the dpkg-source manual page for more
