Should dpkg-source -x list patches (Re: How to handle Debian patches)

I totally agree that we need to make our changes more visible. In the
openssl case, the patch in question is inside the .diff.gz and you don't
notice it in the unpacked source package. I tend to give a look to what's
in debian/patches/ when I rebuild a package but not to what's in .diff.gz
If I inspect an unknown package I always do
zgrep "^+++ " *.diff.gz | grep -v "/debian/"
and I wonder whether I should file a bug report against "dpkg-source -x"
to do this by default.
