I'm currently looking into several systems. Usually I use Subversion and
svn-buildpackage but due to a lot of trouble with svn-buildpackage I
have moved away from repositories for my Debian packages lately.

Darcs looks like a nice competitor but has some issues regarding
checking in changes automatically (might as well be my ignorance but it
sounds like I need weird scripts and a .procmailrc to merge changes

For git and bzr there don't seem to be sophisticated tools to build
packages (*-buildpackage). svn-buildpackage for example keeps the
upstream tarballs in one directory but still builds from the trunk/
which is pretty nice.

Well, well, all the RCS philosophy again. Too much choice.
