Please don't.
Whilst the upgrade checklist says "should use d/watch instead", the
actual policy simply removed the 'get-orig-source' paragraph, therefore
simply that target is not standardized anymore.  And as you probably
guess maintainer can put whatever target they want in their d/rules :)

I would be fine with such pedantic tag if lintian checked for e.g.
get-orig-source targets that only call uscan, those are idiotic for me.
