Maybe I missed something from earlier discussion - but why not rename
debian/source/patch-header to debian/patches/debian-changes?  (I mean,
dpkg-source would preserve the header when regenerating the file, like
quilt does, right?)  And the existence of that patch file should
already imply the --single-debian-patch flag.
