I think you should rename the "debianize" command to something
like "bdist_deb_prepare" or the like. Maybe even make it a
bdist_deb subcommand.

The reason is that this command is likely only going to be
used together with bdist_deb unless I misunderstood its

Perhaps we need a new class of commands like "aux_deb",
"aux_rpm", etc. that add auxiliary directories and
files to a package ?!
