Ah, OK!  Yes, I'm one of the people with checkin privileges. 

Since the code is quickly moving to use the Distutils for
installation, your job, and the job of Debian maintainers of
Python-related packages, might be much simpler if the Distutils could
automatically build .deb files, much as it can currently build RPM
files.  Then it would be trivial to build the .deb for any random
Python package.  Some work on this has been attempted:


But nothing's been implemented yet.  You might want to talk to Gregor
Hoffleit, or post on the Distutils list, and see what progress is
being made.
