That sounds ideal!

This sounds perfect!

In fact, there's no policy in Ubuntu that mandates that "ubuntu" must
be in the version string, even if the package isn't synced from
Debian. If we were to drop that (and just use Debian-style
versioning)) and you could commit directly to the packaging trunk, I
think we could manage without any delta at all and you could simply
sync the source package directly from Ubuntu. I think this would make
for an excellent example of a different way of collaborating between
Ubuntu and Debian.
