They have different design goals. Apart from anything else, debstd is
monolithic while debhelper is modular.
There used to be a dh_debstd script to aid migration, but it was removed
because "It was a nice thought-toy, but nobody really used it, right?".
That seems to have been true in practice - if people are going to
convert to debhelper, they generally do so wholesale.
