CDBS is fine for all packages if the maintainer chooses to use it.

I maintain a couple of libraries with CDBS and a couple with debhelper.
There are no problems with using either method, providing they are

Take a look at the source for libqof1 and tell me that CDBS cannot work
for a *proper* library package.

And is soon to be mandated by policy.

CDBS will do this for you if you create the entry in debian/control.
