As much as I dislike upstream tarballs shipping debian directories, I
really don't approve much of the practice of repacking tarballs just for
that reason.

If I find something that claims to be the original tarball of passenger
2.0.3 (by having a filename such as passenger_2.0.3.orig.tar.gz), and
the checksum doesn't match what I can find on the upstream's ftp site, I
get *very* suspicious.
