Now I must use quilt for apply and unapply the patches. I think this way
is transparent.

But there is one problem: 
If I had unapplied all patches of debian/patches and later I start with
debuild, then dpkg-source works with the unpatched sources - it doesn't
apply the patches as in format 1.0. Is there a chance that dpkg-source
see the patches and can recognize that they must be applied before run

Fondest regards,
