Hi Martín.  My apologies for the mess, and thanks so much for fixing it up.

Sure thing.  I usually check d/rules to check whether there's a get-orig-source
target and repack but it looks like I've missed it for x-net.  Sorry.

I've added generation of a debdiff to my Jenkins server so hopefully I can catch
import silliness in the future.
