Well, you can always run dpkg-source with --single-debian-patch and figure
out how to plug that into your local build system. That doesn't help with
the patch header, though; if you create a file called source/patch-header,
then that header will be applied by default to any patches created by
dpkg-source. Which is probably not appropriate.

I think what happens there is that the version number of the patch keeps
changing, but for my workflow I never full-circle the built Debian package
back to the Git repository, so there's nothing to clean out. But the
patch header will be wrong.
