That is indeed almost entirely a Deepayan (juicy code) and Dirk (mere packaging) issue as the rest (Ubuntun etc) just follows from there. And r-sig-debian would indeed have been a good venue too. But posting here makes it a nice reminder to everybody not using the .deb package about what they are missing :)
