No, it's clearly a hack and one that might have side effects due to
differences (for example in set of ignored files) between format 1.0
and format 3.0 (quilt).

To me the right approach is to extend sbuild to support alternative ways
to copy the unpacked source tree into the build chroot. Your suggestion
to rely on a git bundle is a possibility. A plain tar of the build
directory is another approach.

IMO this goes in the right direction of entirely eliminating source
packages in the long term.
