As Jesse Keating tried to tell you, the reality is that the owerwhelming
majority of the code we package is not pure VCS dumps, because upstreams
massage their files manually before doing official releases, so being
able to base a package on a precise tar.gz as posted on upstream's
homepage is a hard requirement.

As long as your system can take this into account I don't think anyone
would mind having a more modern way to manage the stuff we put around
this upstream archive.
