That is, to have a .dpatch file whose purpose is to unpack the tarball
on 'patch' and delete the tree on 'unpatch'.

But as I said: Such a patch would be big and it should not stay inside
the package-source.

Umm dpatch allows arbitrary commands, not just patch. so it would simply call "tar -zxf" twice on patch, and an "rm -rf" on unpatch. It would hardly take up any room at all.
