Nice idea. Unfortunately

uscan --force-download

does not call the script. Instead it tries to get the archive I'm
testing for - but that's not, what I want - the get-orig-source gets the
necessary archives, merges them and creates the source tarball. Is the
problem, that the above idea fails, related to the fact, that I'm using
version 3 of the debian/watch format?

To tell, where I want to use it: docbook-xsl (and if this works I would
like to implement the same for docbook, docbook-xml, ...). The current
watch file can be found at:
