agreed, it is specific to git-buildpackage because of the following two
lines in debian/gbp.conf:

    # Directory for performing the build
    export-dir = ./debian-build

if gbp removed the directory after building, though, there would be no
artifacts left to review, sign or upload.  so that doesn't make sense

those lines have been there since 2608bfe95 (in 2010) when
debian/gbp.conf was created.  maybe the right thing is just to remove
them, so that gbp buildpackage will default to whatever the user's
default build location is?  (usually ../, iiuc).

Any objections to removing the export-dir directive from gbp.conf?
