The correct target would be get-orig-source IMHO, which is also
documented in the policy. Further svn-buildpackage allows (does it
still?) to set the path of the upstream tarball via the svn-bp:origUrl
property. Maybe with some tweaking, svn-buildpackage is able to use
so you don't need to determine $VERSION directly. It's also possble to
store the tarballs in the repository.
