Awesome, I guess we have two different kind of users for these kind of packages:

- people who just want to try it out. A LiveCD might be better, but if
Debian is already installed, having a stable (read outdated) version
on the official repositories might be good enough. 'apt-get install
sugar' should just work.

- people who want to test it or develop for it. Alternative repos
might be provided, with testing and unstable versions, after adding
those repos, apt-get should be enough.

This matches the debian style?
