I'm going to assume the issue is that we have a weak Depends:
espeak-data-udeb (from src:espeak) in espeakup-udeb (from src:espeakup).
If that's correct, why not just make it a stronger Depends, using
something like:

  Depends: espeak-data-udeb (>= uv), espeak-data-udeb (<< uv-next)

where uv is espeak's upstream version, and uv-next the next one?

Before considering size increase, I'd like to better grasp the issue
we're trying to solve.
