FWIW, I've been using a patched distutils with bdist_deb, and it's worked
fine for the most part. The only issue I had was with a setuptools package
(rather than distutils), which I'm sure can be worked out. (Not that I'm
particularly convinced setuptools is the right approach for a .deb, but I
haven't really seen the point of setuptools anyway ;)
