Why do you believe repacking upstream tarball should be the default
behavior (especially when, as already pointed before, “You *should*
upload packages with a pristine source tarball if possible”)? Having
uscan making it easier to repack upstream tarball when it is *actually*
sensible shouldn’t be a good excuse to repack every upstream tarball by
default just because it’s easy…
