It will require symlinks and other hacks on numerous machines
all around the world. I don't think this is justified.

Post-etch? Yet again this is looking like a Debian-specific project.
Why is a Debian release any more important than a Fedora,
SuSE, Slackware, Gentoo, or Mandriva release?
How many non-Debian people have commit access now?
How many Debian developers do?
It's perfectly OK to have this be Debian-specific, but that
really ought to be made clear if so.
