It would be good, if debian/ and emdebian/ wouldn't diverge too much.
Wouldn't it be better to have a debian/emrules to prevent from this?
(In constrast to having another directory emdebian.)

Other point: Many people use CDBS nowadays, so that rules is often
only three lines.  Maybe one could add emdebian support to CDBS?
One could have a special class for embedian which e.g. removes
everything from ./debian/tmp/usr/share/doc/... etc.
