To sum up, you don’t want to standardize on an interface that would
force you to serialize your changes. And unless you do this work, the
result is exactly the same as shipping our current giant diff.gz.

Unless you serialize your changes, you cannot expect them to be
understandable for NMUers. Unless you do this work, it is impossible to
make them available to upstream developers. Hacking your git dpkg-source
v3 format sounds like something that was very fun to develop, but it is
completely out of the scope of a source package distribution format.

  `-        our own. Resistance is futile.
