Indeed. I can see why Mo would want to put it in one file, but the
Debian package format can work just fine if you work from git
repositories as you suggest, plus if it looks like a more or less usual
debian source package, then it's a smaller leap to turn it into a real
package that can graduate into making its way into Debian.
