Given that the only released product Debian has is, uhm, a Linux
distribution, I think my response is unsurprising. But if you want to
be a cock, feel free. So far, the only thing you've offered Debian is
the opportunity to ship your project. Which, thanks to the marvels of
open source, we could do anyway if we wanted. You're asking for quite a
lot in return.
 I did consider just putting "I think" somewhere in the headers to
satisfy you, but I guess that might have seemed a touch petty.
