Bug Description

upstream tarballs are not stored in a way that makes use of looms; we should teach builddeb how to do that.

Its not that it doesn't work with looms, its that we want the metadata stored slightly differently - thread rather than tag. This needs to be applied to import-dsc and merge-upstream.

As a first step I've written an import-upstream that will store into a tag as import-dsc and merge-upstream do; but that doesn't fix this bug.
