How to handle dirty tarballs (Was: Enabling uscan to simply remove files from upstream source)


when working on patches for uscan to implement the removal of files
I stumbled upon one problem:  What to do with dirty tarballs (which
are unpacking all their files straight to the unpack directory and
do not create a subdirectory).  When I write get-orig-source tarballs
I always create a <pkg>-<version> directory and unpack the content
to this.  Should this be implemented as well or do you think it is
better to change as less as possible?

Kind regards
