The issue is not about having different programs depending on the
packaging tool.  It's about creating multiple binary packages, with
the same packaging tool, out of a single source package.  Think of a
client/server package for which you want to create separate binary
packages with the client sub-package, the server sub-package and the
common sub-package.
