bzr bd-do for full source packages

Bug Description

If I want to build a package, then make some changes based on the build tree, I have to run bzr builddeb -- -nc, manually change directory to the sources, make changes and test with debuild -nc, run debuild -S, manually copy the changes back. bzr bd-do handles this more elegantly by creating a temporary shell in which to work then copying back changes on exit, but it only works for merge mode packages, something similar for full source packages would be good.

Actually scrap that, you can run debuild from within a packaging branch and it will happily ignore the .bzr directory. But there does need to be a way to get the upstream source tar
