If we're going to be explicit about defining the handling of
orig.tar.gz, and when native and non-native source packging should be
used, we should also note that sometimes it is necessary to use a
debian-native packaging, due to a defficiencies in dpkg-source, diff,
and patch not being able to handle modified or new binary files.
