The new source package format _was_ designed with multi-binary
packages in mind.  dpkg itself is such a package !

If you think you can't get it to work you've probably done something
wrong, like not RTFM'ing dpkg-source(1).  In particular, note the -T,
-p, -P, -d &c options to the various tools.  See the dpkg debian/rules
file for an example.
