I've extended this a bit, making it more universal and convenient.

I moved the actial repackaging in debian/get-orig-source sh script,
hooked it to uscan, renamed the target in debian/rules to
get-orig-source (whthout the final 's').

After all this, all of the following do the same:

  debian/rules get-orig-source
  uscan --force

The last line is what we usually use for the rest of the packages.

I also removed README from dh_installdocs call as it duplicated
Data::Stag POD and added get-orig-source to .PHONY

I hope this is not too much of intervention :)

*green light* :)

I built the package in a just-updated sid chroot, then used the lintian
on up-to-date sid and didn't see the strange error Gregor has.
