No, it'a already easy to insert intermediate code, I think the back-end is a
separate process that reads it from a file. But I don't know if the back-end
format is documented (as the dpkg interface is). To document it, you'd have
to get rather deep into the source code, and you would probably end up copying
snippets of the source code into the generator.
