I wonder what we could do to give a better hint what's failing here?
Maybe if pristine-tar printed something like:

# pristine-tar: Couldn't find pristine-tar data for maildir-utils_0.9.6.99.orig.tar.gz

instead of the rather git specific:

# pristine-tar: git show refs/heads/pristine-tar:maildir-utils_0.9.6.99.orig.tar.gz.delta failed

would do any good (the later could still be printed in verbose mode
since it's helpful when debugging)?
