Unfortunately I was off-line yesterday, so I didn't read this and did
some parallell work on it...

I finally bit the bullet and installed git-doc, RTFM and without
claiming that I am a git master, I now have got the git stuff sorted
out better. I have attached a v4 (version clash with yours - maybe we
should use source revision tool...) to XorgOnTheEdge. It works fine
except when there are missing Build-depends in Debian git, or when the
debian/patches in Debian git are outdated and need a manual refresh.
The script waits at strategic points, so you can do a ctrl-Z and fix
these things. Maybe having a catalogue of needed fixes for each
package would be a way.

It can now build from upstream branches, example: auto-xorg-git ati

I'll have a look at your refinements!
