I haven't attempted to submit my code yet. It works for me, but still
has to be cleaned up. Right now, I'm packaging it as a way of
documenting and organizing what I've done.

But, aside from the pbuilder specifics: Is there any policy, best
practice, or LSB scheme for extending an existing package? Are there any
hooks to re-apply changes to an existing package after it has been updated?
