Conditional dependencies for a Debian package

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am creating a package that needs to depend on a package if another is installed, but needs a different dependency if no such package is installed. Is that possible using just the control file of the .deb, or are other tools needed? This package is actually meant for Ubuntu, so any tools unavailable in Ubuntu repositories can't be used. (HowTos)
