I just wanted to follow up on stdeb and the debianize command you added. First of all, thanks! I've just pulled your git head and tried this out in a virtualenv, and it works exactly the way I'd hoped. Combined with some of the other things I'm working out I think this is the way I intend to go. Kudos.
I do have a few minor issues, and I'll file bugs on github for each. Also, I'm wondering if you've released a version with the debianize command, and if not when you might do that. I'd like to work on getting that available in Debian, Ubuntu, and my PPA.
