Given that the only released product Debian has is, uhm, a Linux 
distribution, I think[1] 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.

[1] I did consider just putting "I think" somewhere in the headers to 
satisfy you, but I guess that might have seemed a touch petty.
