That's crazy.
Originaly, I wrote svn-buildpackage (former svn-devscripts) for a
similar purpose - the "other" Debian package has been imported as
pseudo-upstream source and svn tracked the difference between "upstream"

Not sure whether this hack still works, I have not beeing used it for
months and changed a lot in the scripts.
