I just tried this on madwifi, and it only pulled me contents of debian/
directory. Now I can't use that to anything, since there is no matching
upstream sources available. I wonder if it would make sense to require
that the Vcs- fields points to something that can actually be built. Now
I have to go wandering where to get the matching upstream..
