Looks pretty similar to what I do except that you use upstream while I
use the debian branch as the base. I do that so I can have different
patch-queues for different debian releases like:

patch-queue/master
patch-queue/lenny
patch-queue/bpo-lenny
patch-queue/experimental

The branch point for the patch-queue branch would then always be the tip
of the corresponding debian branch, like:

git branch patch-queue/lenny lenny
git quilt-import debian/patches/series

Cheers,
 -- Guido
