NEVER use files in /tmp with predictable names unless you want to
be vulnerable to a simple symlink attack.
If you are creating a deb of debs, I'd opt for a multideb that
contains all files, scripts integrated into one single large
.deb instead of one large .deb file that contains more .deb
packages inside. However, maybe I haven't yet understood what
you want to achieve.
