Not yet... maybe it could be added... there are a few other things on 
the table... One is getting the current deb finialized so that I can
add it to Debian's distribution.

I'd also like to see it tested under some of the other architectures...
none of which I have access too...

I'm thinking... but bring it up to me again when the deb joins the
distribution... also, there's no promise of debian actually using the
deb :(  The current maintainers of the BTS could decide to keep working
with the current software.  Debian wasn't ever upgraded from 0.2 to 1.0 
when IWJ released that version... that trend could continue...
