No, I don't know such kind of tool at all.

Manually edit (sigh ;) In old packages, there was no
patch so, mainly for smooth cvs-upgrade, I extracted
Debian specific modification from tetex-bin/base_*.diff.gz
tetex-bin (1.0.7+20011202-8.1) unstable; urgency=low
* For smooth upgrading, I collected every modifications to patch-deb,
so I hope cvs-upgrade would not cause troubles.
Please do NOT upload this version. [kohda]
and when I upgraded from 1.0.7+20011202 to 20021025,
20021025 to 2.0, 2.0 to 2.0.1, 2.0.1 to 2.0.2 I did
necessary modifications manually.
But this was mainly because I didn't have sufficient
knowledge on script languages etc.
