I had the same thoughts and hoped you'd have a brilliant solution. :-)

Hmm. Yes. I think this would work. That might be the best solution.
In fact, it may be a nice trend setter.

From my "generate a package" script:
find $package_src/* -print -follow | egrep -v '\.cvsignore|\.bak$|\.orig$|~$|^.#|CVS|%redact|/tags$' | egrep -v "$src_exclude" |
sort | tar -T - --no-recursion -cjf "$tarstem"-src.tar.bz2
