I wouldn't want to see object files in the source package.

I must be able to download your source package to a machine with only Main
installed, do 'dpkg-buildpackage', and get a usable deb.  There is no
reason why doing likewise on a machine with icc installed and CC=icc could
not also produce a usable deb given the right debian/rules and makefiles.

I _think_ it would also be acceptable for you to build the debs you upload
with CC=icc.

Would anyone use the pure-gcc version?
