AFAIK, wanna-build is the only serious contender.  It still has some
problems, but it seems to be actively worked on.

Problems it has:

  * not packaged yet (James Troup is purportedly working on this)
  * documentation needs work (I have some aspirations to help here)
  * can't deal with, say, a maintainer uploading
    architecture-dependant packages for an architecture which isn't i386

BTW, this last case may happen to me soon, as I move all of my work
over to my new Ultra5.
