It's possible and no different from producing binaries with different
versions from the same source package.  I do that with bash and

Use the -v option to dpkg-gencontrol and calculate the version in the
rules file by prepending an epoch to the actual version.

	version=$(shell dpkg-parsechangelog | awk '/^Version/ {print $2}')
	dpkg-gencontrol "-v1:$version" ...
