Saying that the plural 3.0 source formats allow Debian tools to
consume multiple package source formats is equivalent to saying that
upstream developers have no standard source format to rely on from

It might allow interesting competition between the different source
formats, but it doesn't improve the upstream's patch interface,
because they still have to deal with a plural set of patch management
