It has a really nice source package format. But the dpkg in there is broken,
and AFAIK none of the current dpkg "non-maintainers" is working on that

Actually, IIRC, the dpkg-deb is what's broken, it has its exit codes all upside down, which causes dpkg and anything else that calls dpkg-deb to die.
