Thanks.  FYI, dgit trees are (for `3.0 (quilt)' format source
packages) what is nowadays called a `patches-applied packaging

That is, the dgit git tree contains the patches in debian/patches/ but
also contains the implied changes in the main source code.  If you add
commits yourself to the dgit git tip, new patches will generated from
your commits.

It sounds like your workflow is pretty close to compatible with dgit.
