Before I have made official Debian packages I have collected many
experience with format 1.0 and I find it easy. Since some weeks I make
some official Debian packages and since my beginning of maintaining I
use the new format 3.0 (quilt). 

I still use CDBS and I use "simple-patches" - but now without CDBS
support. My minor change is the file "patches/series" which let
dpkg-buildpackages know that there are patches. This seems very simple,
too. To get the old manner, I must only delete the series file and add
the CDBS line into debian/rules. But remaining in format 3.0.

Because I never used quilt, the syntax for quilt is a little bit stupid
for me. So also with the new format I don't use quilt.

The only missing item for me is: there are no simple command to unapply
the patches with dpkg-buildpackages (or debuild). For example: 

   debuild unapply

I have found this info at the beginning inside the first dpkg package
with format 3.0 support.

Final: I can work with the new format - but not with quilt!
