The same stands for me.

Still, I haven't followed discussions about ddebs very closely : my
understanding of them is probably the same than Niels' knowledge of
udebs..:-). Still, I understand the basic concepts (providing debug
symobols and debug "stuff" in dedicated packages in a similar way to
what Ubuntu is, IIRC, doing in Launchpad).

And with that understanding, I don't really see how it could be
possible to use these in the D-I context.

The same stands for me (anyone feeling like waving a magic wand to
have Joeyh contributing back to D-I and dh?).
