The only problem for using uversionmangle is:

I: librime source:
debian-watch-file-should-dversionmangle-not-uversionmangle line 3
N:    The version of this package contains dfsg, ds, or debian, but a
N:    misleading upstream version mangling occurs in the debian/watch file.
N:    Since the dfsg string is not part of the upstream version and its
N:    addition is Debian-specific, the the debian/watch file should use the
N:    dversionmangle option to remove, instead of adding in uversionmangle,
N:    the dfsg before comparing version numbers.
N:    Refer to http://wiki.debian.org/DEHS for details.
N:    Severity: wishlist, Certainty: certain
N:    Check: watch-file, Type: source

But if we use dversionmangle instead of uversionmangle,
then the renamed origin tarball has name "librime_1.1.orig.tar.gz",
 which needs to be manually renamed to "librime_1.1+dfsg.orig.tar.gz".
