My gut feeling is, that this functionality should be shipped in debhelper directly, specifically in the meson build system class . debhelper is written in perl, and I don't think we want to add a dependency on Python. But the debcrossgen.py code looks straightforward enough to be ported to perl. That said, if Jussi thinks that this script might be useful for other distros / use cases, then shipping it upstream in the meson package might be an option as well. Jussi, what would you prefer?
