A sample dpkg source package built using this is at

the last 200 commits to the dpkg git repo, so it's more than 1 mb *smaller*
than dpkg's normal .tar.gz!

What was removed from the source tree when importing it into git to save this space? I did a checkout of the sample git repository and its working tree is 8 mb smaller than the unpacked standard source archive working tree. It appears there are several po directories that are significantly smaller in the git repo. I don't know much about that other than it has something to do with i8n. Did you remove support for some languages or something?
