Well, note that (1) is already possible and not even all that hard.
That is, to have a .dpatch file whose purpose is to unpack the tarball
on 'patch' and delete the tree on 'unpatch'.  dpatch was written with
that sort of flexibility in mind - it seems a shame not to use that
flexibility for one of the few things it's actually good for.  (I've
always viewed that flexibility in dpatch to be a serious case of
overengineering, but this is probably a valid use case.)
