I don't see any alternative to fixing patch, even though it will only be a
fix in the Debian distribution, I can see no application for a Debian
Source Package outside of a Debian system.

Dpkg-source needs to trap everything at package creation time that it will
catch on package extraction.
We also need to publicize the patch to patch for those outside of the
Debian community to use, and hopefuly it will be incorporated into the
upstream source.
