We are packaging zope-common from Ubuntu for Debian, patching it
with dpatch to make it easier later on for Ubuntu to base its work
on Debian, rather than the other way around (even though doko/Ubuntu
did most of the work so far).

Parts of debian/rules are Ubuntu-specific (e.g. mv README.Debian
README.Ubuntu) and we would love to have that removed.

So are you saying that we're at a loss here? I guess I can work
around it by:

  build: patch
    $(MAKE) real-build

    /// do whatever

but I was wondering if there is a better way...
