With this watch file:

http://bioinformatics.org/websvn/listing.php?repname=molekel&path=%2Ftags%2F&rev=0&sc=0 listing.php\?repname=molekel\&path=%2Ftags%2F([\d\.]+)%2F\&rev=0\&sc=0

This command: uscan --no-conf --watchfile watch --force-download --package molekel
--upstream-version 0

does this:
molekel: Version (5.2.0) available on remote site:
  (local version is 0)

So, just add a "debian <script>" line to the second watchfile line to
move your src.tar.gz to molekel_VER.orig.tar.gz. See the uscan man
page for this. (I am having trouble with the net connection, so can't
probe further).
