Eh, no. Your source package *is* 45Mb.

The tar.bz2 is not part of the source package.

Yes. dpkg-source -x in sid/etch could extract debian source packages
however the ftp suite would reject such uploads and dpkg-dev cannot
generate such source packages. (Bug#382673)

Just take a look at *any* (nonative) sourcepackage in debian e.g.
The orig.tar.gz contains the unmodified upstream sources (For iceape
you'll end up with something similar, original upstream minus
swaks_0+20060621.0-1.diff.gz contains any changes to the sources.
swaks_0+20060621.0-1.dsc is a plain text file, read it.
