OK, I'll see what I can do about that.  I don't know if it'd be better
to push it into the Debian or the Ubuntu system.  I know they're
intertwined, but I don't know how closely.  My guess is that pushing
to Debian might pick up more people, as more distros are based off of
Debian (including those through Ubuntu) than those off of just Ubuntu.
 However, I don't know how much more difficult it is to push for both,
and I don't know the status of the packages in Debian proper.
