Once the package is released, this becomes a non-issue, because "apt-get
source" takes care of downloading and unpacking the orig.tar.gz file.

However, while the version is still only at the SVN repository,
developers have to generate the orig.tar.gz by hand.  In waiting that
someone will volunteer to write a build-orig-tar-gz script, here is the
cookbook you should use:

    debver=`echo $srcver | sed s/^B// | sed s/-/./`
    mv jed-$srcver.tar.gz jed_$debver.orig.tar.gz
    tar xfz jed_$debver.orig.tar.gz
    cd jed-$srcver
    svn co svn+ssh://
