I've updated our cargo.git with some documentation on how to update the package, and updated some configs and scripts etc to match.

Now things will "work" if you run:

$ debian/make_orig_multi.sh 0.16.0
# move the files over
$ gbp import-orig ../cargo_0.16.0.orig.tar.gz # also imports the -deps tarball automatically

However, I've decided to not yet push these 0.16.0 commits, because I'm not sure if we need to tweak the -deps tarball further.

Luca, could you give us some guidance on how to proceed?

Perhaps we need to first expand clean-cargo-deps.patch or deps-tarball-filter.txt?
