Handling a separate branch mean seems a lot of maintenance, whereas
updates of the debian packaging system would go in the debian directory
(I mean, except manapges ;-), and work on the trunk would never change
the debian directory. 

Maybe a lighter solution would be to maintain the debian directory at
another place in the repository, for example in packages/debian, and to
make it appear in trunk using the subversion svn:external attribute.
This way the debian directory would appear in all the releases of
