Now, clearly I am biased, but I generally use bzr-builddeb even when
developing changes targeted directly for Debian, because I really like the
workflow and much prefer bzr over the alternatives.  When the Launchpad
importer is up-to-date for a particular Debian package[*], everything works
nicely and quickly, and I've even managed to make quilt work mostly

I accept that others have different, completely valid opinions on the matter.


[*] which is actually more likely with Debian branches than Ubuntu branches
because Ubuntu developers will almost never push to debianlp: branches.
