Uhm, ok.  Maybe it's because I read some old docs, or something, but
when I investigated svn-buildpackage it stated quite clearly that you
had to include upstream in the repository and that the layout of the
repository had to be different than the one we are using.

I took this as a true statement and didn't even try to use
svn-buildpackage, because I was convinced it wouldn't work.

Ok.  I agree to do some sort of change to the tree.  What would be
your suggested layout?
