AFAIK you don't actually need the bit-identical .orig.tar.gz to build
the > -1 uploads of a package. You only need a tarball that contains the
identical files as the .orig.tar.gz. Which can be generated from a
tag or branch with the same contents. Perhaps dgit should arrange for
that to be checked in automatically the same way it checks in the
debinized source tree?

(Having such a ref in git would be more or less a prerequisite for using
pristine-tar in an efficient manner anyway.)
