Yup, it works well for me too.

The way I handle things, as a release procedure, is that I'll release new
Debian-specific versions (-2, -3, etc.) when the changes are only in the
debian directory, but for anything that affects the rest of the package,
I'll release a new upstream version.  I figure that if it's important
enough to release a new Debian package, it's important enough to release a
new upstream release too, and just make it clear to people in the release
notes whether it's a bug fix they're likely to care about.
