The time at which one uses gbp (if one does) you are not likely to have
or want to have the tree clean in a debian/rules clean sense.  You
are more likely to have it in a git clean -x -f -d sense and this does
not help you.  As the chances of the tag format changing on master is
close to 0 and if we _do_ change it we need to change the branch one
anyway, we are probabally ok to change this in the branch directly.
Much as we necessarily do for debian.env config.
