Be careful of this advantage, though. It works when you deal with git exclusively for all your packages but for the majority of our packagers, we'll have to deal with a minimum of two vcses and methodologies. I deal with upstream who has svn, cvs, none, hg, and bzr. So if we did good exploded tree support I'd need to work with dist-cvs, hg, and bzr locally.

(And saying: "Don't convert your other packages" is extremely hard for a variety of reasons:

1) Since you aren't the only maintainer, you may not have a choice.
2) When packages are passed back and forth between maintainers, you end up with a very disjoint history if you let them switch in and out of upstream VCS arbitrarily.
