I don't really like this non-usage because it means I have to go tarball
hunting if I want to compile one of the packages. Given that some of the
packages might need dfsg cleaning up the only valid tarball probably is
the orig.tar.gz in the package. Now if a new version is being worked
upon I'm out of luck.
