For Windows I don't know, but for Debian (and may be also for RPM)
definitely yes, IMO. In Debian it is quite tipical to derive multiple binary
packages from only one tar source. That way, you can group Debian scripts
better, avoid redundances and improve maintenance.

You are doing a very good job organizing scipy sources; this task may seem
quite tough but it is very important to spread scipy. Go ahead.
