I think this is silly. We have to make the packages available in some 
form or another; Debian is as useful as any other, more useful than 
some, and we have a system more or less in place for doing it 
automatically.  If someone came out of the woodwork offering to produce 
Mac archives or Windows MSIs  that would be nice, but there's no sign of 
that happening sfaics.

If we stopped producing deb archives, presumably everyone would have to 
maintain their system either by synchronising with the svn repo, or by 
downloading and unpacking tar archives, which would just add to our 
support burden and reduce still further the usability of the service
