Well, if you have the usual quilt rules, you working copy is also modified
until the next debian/rules clean. Here the clean doesn't unapply the
patches because the standard state is having the patches applied (that's
what you get after dpkg-source -x).

It's a wiki so people can add their own recommendations over time...

What problem do you get with svn-buildpackage? It doesn't support multiple
upstream tarballs but if you don't use that feature it should not be a
problem at all...
And next time you could ask your questions without doing snide remarks
about the work done, you will still get answers...
