Or quilt. Ugh. If it comes down to quilt, there is no way I'm using UDD until: 
- there is a *consistent* mode of use (pop or push? include .pc or not?)
- someone documents this consistent mode of use

From what I understand, there are people doing things all sorts of ways with 
quilt, and I really don't want to have to learn all the ways people are using 
quilt with bzr and try to figure out *which* way any particular package is 
using that combination.  I'll stick to apt-get source for those.  Still have 
to dput anyway...

(For non-quilt packages, I'm fine with UDD)
