Dear Maintainer,

TTBOMK currently there is no tool to assemble the source for a binNMU. The 
source for a binNMU has do be assembled like this:

- take the normal source package and unpack it
- extract the d/changelog stanza from the .buildinfo file in question and
  concatenate that with d/changelog from the source package.
- use dpkg-source to build the source package.

It would be great if debrebuild would this if instructed to.

"#961861 ┬źdebrebuild: should (optionally) download the source too┬╗" is a
blocker/requirement to fix this bug.
