I'd note that bzr-builddeb is almost there already. Thanks to Jelmer and
bzr's abstractions it already works on svn checkouts (and when called
with a repository URI I guess), and as bzr-git and bzr-hg improve then
it will work for those as well. It also attempts to transparently pick
up the svn-buildpackage configuration, so it will work for the
packages using mergeWithUpstream.
It may be that currently it wouldn't really satisfy users of SVN, as it
has been written so that those who prefer bzr can use it, but that's
bzr may be a larger abstraction interface than you would like, but it's
available now, so it may be good for prototyping at the very least.
