Note that in the last Debian version of dpkg, "-I" is enough to exclude
all standard RCS related directories.

We also spoke once of creating a user configuration file where we could
add default options for the various commands like dpkg-buildpackage and
dpkg-source. Combined with "-I" it could be enough.

It's another option that could solve your problem.

Frank already said he didn't want to change the default behaviour. However
we can change this behaviour for newer versions of source package
(like the long-awaited wig&pen aka v2).
