I presume you could ship all the "normal" files in one tarball,
the .arch-ids and {arch} directories in another, and the debian/
directory in a third.

That would give the NMUer a full working tree to run $TLA diff
in.  Only shipping a grab file would burden the end user with
a need for http access and no guarantee that the source will
be available.

It shouldn't be too difficult to add an --autoregister switch to tla
grab, though I don't know how safe it'd be.
