I recently tried the most recent patch from #585658 when looking at 'love',
another multi-source package, but it did not resolve the build failure for
me. In that situation, I gave up, used dpkg-source to extract/merge the
upstream tarballs, manually checked out ./debian, used debuild -i.svn
-I.svn and avoided svn-buildpackage altogether. But that was for one patch
on a package I don't regularly maintain, so I guess that doesn't scale.
(I should probably update the bug.)
If the patch is working for you, great! Sadly it's not comprehensive enough
to work in all situations yet.
