Package: dpkg-dev

My intention was to extract a source, mv the DIR to DIR.orig, extract
the source again, make some modifications inside DIR and then do a recursive
diff from DIR.orig to DIR by hand.

Well, dpkg-source did not let me to do that.

I dowloaded the source of gzip (as an example) and I did the following:

$ dpkg-source -x gzip_1.2.4-26.dsc
dpkg-source: extracting gzip in gzip-1.2.4
$ mv gzip-1.2.4 gzip-1.2.4.orig
$ dpkg-source -x gzip-1.2.4
dpkg-source: extracting gzip in gzip-1.2.4

At this point, the gzip-1.2.4.orig directory dissapeared.
This should not have happened, or there should be an option
to override it, since dpkg-source obviously can do its things
in whatever temporary directory to extract the sources properly.

 dpkg (1.13.9) unstable; urgency=low
   The "On like Donkey Kong" Release.
   * Only open the log file when we first need to write to it, this avoids
     the need to suppress errors when not root which fakeroot defeated anyway.
   * Stop dpkg-source clobbering an existing .orig directory during unpacking.
     Closes: #21236.
   * Allow an alternate output directory to be specified to dpkg-source by
     giving a second argument to -x.  Closes: #246802, #282323.
   * Added .arch-inventory to default diff ignore regexp.  Closes: #304297.
   SELinux support (Manoj Srivastava):
   * On SELinux-enabled systems, try to set the security context when the
     package is unpacked.  Closes: #193653, #249496, #307139.
   * Added build-dependancy on libselinux1-dev.
   Improvements to dpkg-source (Brendan O'Dea):
   * Support unpacking of "Wig And Pen" (Format 2.0) source packages.
   * Multiple pristine upstream tarballs allowed.
   * Native and upstream tarballs may be bzip2-compressed instead of gzip,
     as may the debian diff or tarball.
   * Unsupported format error fixed to output the unsupported format
     rather than the supported one.  Closes: #156317.
