An alternative is to just provide *-test Debian packages.
If the package exists then building it is the same as running a test of the packages
it requires to be installed - maybe just the "*" package, but it could also be an
integration test.

I've got some packages in SourceForge that allow you to
- build from GIT version control
- install to a sandbox
- do a "make distcheck" and build the Debian package from the tar ball.
- check a particular branch with "make git branch=X check"

The build goodies are in the v3c project

All the other projects inherit these features from v3c.

I hope this gives you some food for thought.
