I need your advise about how to support this kind of features, which I'm
interested in doing it and I actually started to do it.

I think that having a separate debian/control and debian/rules (debian/ folder
as to make it short) to be applied on top of fpc-*.orig.tar.xz will be the
easiest way to go here.

However I don't know if Debian allows to use same source project with two
different packaging folders?
The idea is that fpc and fp-units-win be two completely different projecs, like
Lazarus and qt4pas.
However, while Lazarus and qt4pas do not share same sources, and thus have two
different .orig.tar.xz, here we will really use the very same source code.

Any advise?
