I guess Nick might have been just asking whether this was possible and,
if it is, how to do it - which could fall within "help new packagers
find out how to and help experienced packagers find out how to do
new things" :)

That said, I myself did read the uscan manpage carefully after reading
Nick's question yesterday, and after a couple of quick tests I did
conclude that this was simply not possible with the current version of
uscan - so it might indeed not have been that hard to conclude that
this is, actually, a feature request :)
