It is not exactly what you are asking for,
but dpkg-repack does something similar.
From the package description:

  dpkg-repack creates a .deb file out of a debian package that has
  already been installed. If any changes have been made to the package
  while it was unpacked (ie, files in /etc were modified), the new
  package will inherit the changes.

I hope this helps,
