Using dgit to do an NMU is not supposed to be risky. It is supposed
to get everything right.
At the moment it does comply with the policy and dev ref, but there
are two ways I intend to improve it: firstly to generate better
patches in debian/patches when exporting an NMUer's git tree back into
a Debian source package, and secondly to automatically email the
NMUdiff to the BTS.

A dgit user should be able to do this without reading the debdiff:
`git diff dgit/dgit/sid' ought to suffice.
