Why does it need to be cleaned up?  Other than the fact that the checksums
don't match, what's wrong with the tarball in the archive?

I would be embarrassed to have upstreams releasing new upstream versions
over what should solely be an internal Debian issue.  If the current tarball
really is unacceptable, all it takes to fix up in Debian is to create a
Debian-local upstream version number - like the suggested '0.7.0+pristine.
