Well, for complicated cases (like ffmpeg, where we have to fight with
svn:externals, external svn servers etc) it is very helpful to have such
a rule. Espc. if some user objects with some of the modifications and
needs to apply changes to it in order to get a slightly modified

I think this is a valid usecase for shipping a debian/rules target that
mimics 'apt-get source' (which cannot know what modifications have been
done to the source).
