Having patches applied with 3.0(quilt) calls out for sync problems
between your git tree and debian/patches/. This can be mitigated with
--single-debian-patch --auto-commit but that's not what most people mean
when talking about 3.0(quilt) - and it kind of defeats it's purpose.
It would IMHO be better to have a true git based format then.
