C.4 Unpacking a Debian source package without dpkg-source

   dpkg-source -x is the recommended way to unpack a Debian source
   package. However, if it is not available it is possible to unpack a
   Debian source archive as follows:
    1. Untar the tarfile, which will create a .orig directory.
    2. Rename the .orig directory to package-version.
    3. Create the subdirectory debian at the top of the source tree.
    4. Apply the diff using patch -p0.
    5. Untar the tarfile again if you want a copy of the original source
       code alongside the Debianised version.

   It is not possible to generate a valid Debian source archive without
   using dpkg-source. In particular, attempting to use diff directly to
   generate the .diff.gz file will not work.

Very many(most?) source packages do NOT unpack their .orig.tar.gz to
foo-ver.orig/.  Also, the above paragraph does not consider debian-native

This paragraph also does not allow the internal format of a src pkg to be
changed, which would make a new format more difficult to work with.  I would
prefer to see this section removed, tbh.
