FYI, the "official" recommendation is to keep the Debian dir (and
other patches, if you're not using eg dpatch) in a separate CVS
I would recommend to create a "make deb" rule that does what you
need, to avoid the hastle of remembering to copy the orig tarball :)
See my sextractor diff for an example of how to keep the diff
readable. Of course, you case is a bit different, since ./debian/ is
in upstream tarball.
