Hooray!  This *should* mean we can just Build-Dep on rustc (==release-1) |
rustc (== this release) to build rustc(*), and drop the stage0 orig tarball
completely (**).

(*) debian/rules will need to work out whether we're building with
$release-1 (and do the regular build from stage1) or $release (and jump in
at stage2), which is logic we need to implement first.
(**) (Re-)Bootstrapping a new architectures is still a thing that we need
to worry about that I won't repeat here.

This breaks our make_orig-dl_tarball.py script. I made a start at fixing

I'm busy for this week (at a conference), but I should be able to have a
bash at it next week (or so).  I'm sorry we didn't have this more ready in
time for this change, I wasn't paying enough attention to know this was
finally arriving :/
