If your source builds arch-all packages, this has actually worked for a
long time already.
The changestool utility from the reprepro package can be used to
manipulate a .changes file as needed.
For instance, the way my tor-package build machinery works, I end up
with a source-only .changes file (created by dpkg-genchanges -S) and
then add the .all package using changestool adddeb.
