glad to hear that!
after looking at your TODO, i have a pair of comments on your plan:
- i think site.def is a more adequate place for debian-specific stuff
see what the upstream docs say about site.def (INSTALL-X.org, section 3.5)
- you're moving stuff into debian.cf that isn't actualy debian-specific.
when i said "gnu-common.cf" i meant stuff common to GNUish systems
(mostly related to Glibc and userland), but not debian-specific. 
I think we should take care to do these modifications in a way that they are
acceptable for upstream. So if you split into gnu-common.cf the common
stuff that isn't debian-specific, and into debian.cf (or site.def) the
debian-specific stuff, we'd just have to send gnu-common.cf to upstream
and maintain debian.cf/site.def in debian.
 as of now GNU/Hurd and GNU/*BSD only exist in Debian, but we can't
assume that for a configuration file.
