If the automation actually made things easier, I'd be in favor of it.  I used 
to manually tag uploads in svn for DPMT/PAPT because I didn't trust svn-
buildpackage.  Then I learned it a bit better and started using it because it 
was easier.  Then I learned debcommit -r -R and it was even easier.

I'm all for easy.  I have yet to see a full source (regardless of VCS) or git 
workflow that I didn't find more complex and harder to remember/do correctly 
than what we have now.  I really don't care about what the new hotness is.  It 
actually needs to be better and not just cooler.  For me, a lot of better is
