Hint: Try the development version of dpkg-deb, the one by Klee Dienes.
It has a really nice source package format. But the dpkg in there is broken,
and AFAIK none of the current dpkg "non-maintainers" is working on that
Actually, IIRC, the dpkg-deb is what's broken, it has its exit codes all
upside down, which causes dpkg and anything else that calls dpkg-deb to die.
