Default Prefix level in Quilt patches (was: Support of new source packages in squeeze)

The ‘quilt(1)’ manpage documents a ‘-p’ option:

-p n
Create a -p n style patch (-p0 or -p1 are supported).

My preferred method of producing patches (directly from my VCS) makes
them as equivalent to ‘patch -p0’ patches. But nothing I do seems to
convince the Debian packaging tools to use anything but ‘-p1’ when
applying these patches, which fails of course.

How can I reliably inform the Debian packaging tools that my quilt
patches are in ‘patch -p0’ format?
