Please don't package it as a native Debian package.

You can ship it with an empty Debian diff but please package it 
non-native and with a Debian revision in the version string.

This avoids several problems like e.g. an NMU uploading a new upstream 
version having a higher version number than the maintainer upload of 
this version.
