This is the problem: pristine-tar is not about .asc, it's not even about
source packages or their parts, it's just "regenerate an exact copy of a
pristine upstream tarball" (and while the manpage talks about orig
tarballs I don't know  about any specific support related to orig tarballs
and not just any tarballs). Maybe something else should be extended,
pristine-tar seems like a wrong place.
