If your source package contains the files, and your git tree does too,
then you will find that debian/rules clean generates a dirty git tree.
How do you deal with this problem at the moment ?
I think that whatever solution you adopt will work for dgit too,
although you will want to pass "-wg" to dgit sbuild so that your
build doesn't run rules/clean but instead uses git-clean.
