Err... Currently, the algorithm is quite dumb: the whole text is shifted by
one space, empty lines are replaced with ' .'. Thus the formatting of the
original text is kept in debian/copyright file.
I.e. it will be no better than the dh-make template you've shown :-/
I'll try to re-format such text with Text::Autoformat (another example of
Damian Conway's magic) . Hopefully it will provide better results.
All the best
