I have a question WRT that layout. With SVN, it would be possible to
check out the debian/ folder of one package directly into the unpackaged
upstream source, thus allowing for regular dpkg-buildpackage work. Now,
darcs does not have the feature of checking out subdirectories.

How do you set up your directories? Do you copy the debian/ dir to the
upstream sources, and manually copy them back after changes? Do you
never keep the upstream sources unpackaged and have a dpkg-buildpackage
wrapper that handles that for you?

Unfortunately debian/ can not be a symbolic link.

Maybe, with darcs, having one repo per package makes more sense, so you
can have the repository as debian/ inside the unpackaged upstream
