Yes please. Otherwise it's hard to understand what you patched and why. If 
you really need to package a CVS/SVN version instead of the upstream's 
last stable release then consider using an upstream version 
like "0.99.4+cvs20060813".

The theory is that a user can get the upstream's tarball, apply Debian's 
diff.gz patch and get a working package. The diff.gz contains everything 
you have done. That user would be surprised if the diff.gz didn't work 
with the upstream version you specify.
