splitting a source package into 2 source packages


i'm maintaining a source package that produces two binary packages.  however,
one of the packages is built from a seperately distributed (same author,
same website, but different tarball and versioning scheme) tarball.

so i'm thinking these two packages should be generated from their own
respective tarballs (and i'm not sure why they weren't in the first
place).  however, one thing that's not clear to me is whether or not the
new second source package will have to make it through the NEW queue.
if it does, this is a problem given that NEW seems to be stalled and the
previous version of the package will be totally broken when the other
is updated.

comments would be appreciated... thanks.
