Further experimentation has clarified how to change the packages.

1. No changes to the source package name - only binary packages. This
is because packages have various assumptions that the source package
name won't change and the build tools themselves reinforce those
assumptions with real build breakage.

2. Host the debian/ directory in Emdebian SVN at

3. Keeping the same source package name also means not having to alter
the filenames of original tarballs, making builds easier.

4. svn-buildpackage, svn-inject and svn-update used to try and maintain
the packages.

So far, half the necessary packages have built and one (busybox) is
largely ready.
