Really good point; no one thought of this while we were sprinting on it.
Right, so, two things are now in.

nthykier has checked in a changeset to add a binary control header to
signal it's an autocreated debug package, and dak now uses that to check
to see if it should be diverted.

This means we *wont* see a great pickup in space by moving those super
ultra huge debs (like webkit's debug package) into the other mirror, but
I'm sure we can work something out with the maintainers.

Anyway, thanks for that. Patches made against dak and just getting some
testing locally now.
