I hear that Adam Heath (doogie for those on IRC) has been working on a
new source package format that will make tarball-within-tarball sources
obsolete and has native support for multiple patches and cures for other
ailments. If this works, and I suspect it will, then "unpack" and
"patch" targets will also be obsolete. Personally, I think this will be
a good thing.
