dpatch would be a build-dep, so that would be redundant.  And if that
isn't enough, most people should be bright enough to figure it out once
you start telling them to look at /usr/share/doc/dpatch/... ;)

Yes, I think it would be better to just have the README.source tell
people to look at /usr/share/doc/dpatch/...  This way, it's easy to add
any additional information that you might want to have.
