splitting upstream source (was Re: multiple source files)

This thread reminded me of a question I've been wondering about:
What if you have some upstream source that would be better built
if it was split into two source packages one of which build-depended
on the other one's binary package?  How should one put the location
of the upstream tarball in the copyright file?

"This package was obtained by copying such-and-such directories
 and files out of so-and-so's upstream source available <here>"

Or similar.
