I've been thinking about this for a while, but never actually done
It seems to me that we could have an ExtUtils::MM_Debian which is
almost the same as MM_Unix but helps to create a Debian package. It
could either insert appropriate targets in the generated Makefile
(make binary) or generate an appropriate debian/ directory
Normal users could generate local Debian packages or maintainers could
generate official binary releases (like kernel-package can).
It would be very nice to be able to do things like
tar zxvvf File-Sync-0.05.tar.gz
dpkg -i ../perl-file-sync_0.05-local.1_i386.deb
and have a properly installed package.
