basically it's just a bunch of shell scripts in a cron job, doing some
replacement in the debian/* files. I did this while bored during
painful debian installation, I kept on getting tar crc errors and
segmentation faults on my 8GB card, and needed a lot of retries
installing debian. 

so I'm not building any source package right now, but I could move the
replacement stuff to the debian/rules file, which then would download
kernel and modules when building the package. if you have some
pre-/postinst scripts I would happily add them :-)

what kind of patches would you like to add ?
