Sounds intriguing, can you please share design / intentions there?
git-dpm currently generates debian/patches/* with patches against the
tree applied but without generating/storing .pc directory.
And surprisingly dpkg-source works fine with that. Thus maybe the dgit
sanity check can be adjusted to insure there is no diff between
unpacked source package & git tree, sans .pc ? Because at the moment
for example: quilt push -a, generates .timestamp files (which
dpkg-source does not), hence `git add .pc; git commit -a -m "quilt
spew"; dgit build -S` bombs out asking one to delete .timestamp files
from the git tree.
