Please note that we're talking about Sugar development (i.e. sugar-jhbuild) on Debian unstable here, which is usually rather current. Native Debian packages to go into a stable release are a totally separate matter.

If somebody else volunteers to maintain a sugar-jhbuild that replaces major libraries shipped by the distro: go ahead!
It will get you into dependency hell and I have neither the time nor any inclination to re-enter it after working hard to get _rid_ of most non-Sugar packages in sugar-jhbuild.
As mentioned on IRC, the reason it works well for Gnome is because they replace _all_ the libraries. Apart from raising the bar to using sugar-jhbuild (think disk space, time to build) it requires a lot of effort to keep all packages current.
