Why should 3.0 be any more difficult than 1.0 or anything that follows?
(Not that I have any particular desire to use 3.0 or quilt myself.) 3.0
has to deal with incorporating patches and changes from the BTS, so
+t1.diff.gz is no different. In Squeeze+1, the changes are restricted
to debian/po or po/ for native Debian packages so there is no need to
do anything with 3.0 until Squeeze+2.

What matters is that the maintainer gets the +t1.diff.gz and applies it
onto the source package prior to the next upload. It's no different to
how the same maintainer would handle a patch or new translations
file sent to the BTS. I'm quite sure various tools and scriptage will
be devised to help with different workflow patterns before Squeeze+2.
