It's funny for several microfortnights, but how many people really need to install this? Debian already has 35 thousand binary packages. Do we really need to package everything? Even a tiny software toy brings a bit of burden to the entire project: it needs to be built on every architecture, Packages files grow (and they need to be processed by every Debian computer), translators need to translate the description, etc. If we package this, are we to package every programmatic implementation of every Internet meme out there? What about IOCCC winners? What about love letters expressed in C? tl;dr: I don't think we should have this in Debian. Sorry.
