 I think the Maemo changes are additional control lines to e.g. have an
 icon in the list of installed apps.  Perhaps you can simply generate
 debian/control from debian/control.in and rely on something like
 lsb-release to know when to insert the proper fields?

 If it's also about changing a lot of build-deps / deps, then you might
 want to maintain a completely separate control file for maemo and move
 debian/control.maemo to control instead of sharing a common control.in.
