I've used the debtransform functionality of the buildservice and I'll like
propose the two attached patches:

1) Debian-based distros require the tarball to be .tar.gz , which is annoying
with cross-distro packaging. This patch adds support for using .tar.bz2
or .zip and debtransform converts the archive to .tar.gz , in addition to
renaming it as it does now. I've tested this locally with osc build and it
seems to work fine.

Why don't you just use ".gz" instead?

2) Applying patches using debian.series has a different default for the -p
argument of patch. While .spec defaults to -p0, debtransform defaults to -p1.

IIRC this is to be compatible to the "quilt" series file.
