I'm not a dpkg expert, but I think, no. The way dpkg-source handles
orig.tar.gz files was designed to be kind of robust with respect to,
well, strange upstream decisions. And I think any other tool that is not
as robust as dpkg-source is can be called buggy.
 It can even cope with tarballs unpacking into multiple directories,
instead of one.
