Indeed they are not supported by git-buildpackage not yet but I think
it can still stay in Git. Saying this because I maintain one such
package myself  all I agree I need to handle it manually the new
imports but it doesn't seem that difficult.
There seems to be couple of patches here since the author of gbp
doesn't know our scenario I think its time we use this patch and see
if it works and if it does then I think author can merge it and
release a new git-buildpackage. I will try to give it a shot over the
weekend if I have some time :-)
