What's the equivalent command to svn-do ?

i.e. unpack the tarballs in the export-dir,  put the debian overlay on
top of it, start a shell, let me do stuff in that directory, after exit
of the shell copy back the changed parts of debian/

for the driver I use this frequently to update nv-readme.ids, and
similarily to work with the patches:

debian/rules prepare
cp nv-readme.ids debian/
debian/rules prepare
debian/rules clean
exit 0
svn diff
