I struggle much less dealing with new upstream versions of packages since I 
moved everything over to using cvs-buildpackage.  There's no way I could begin
to keep up with 41 source packages without good revision control, and Manoj's 
tools make it pretty easy to manage packages in CVS.

I haven't *quite* got all my upstreams trained to avoid symlinks in their
release tarballs yet, but I'm getting close...  :-)
