With avahi in unstable we seem to have a fairly capable set of zeroconf/mdns tools in Debian now, albeit with some holes. There are for example some things like mod_dnssd that are not packaged yet and some interesting patches that aren't applied to some apps. And adding mdns to /etc/nsswitch.conf is still being worked out.
One thing I desperately wish for is for a big flip switch to turn it off, even if I have KDE or GNOME installed, both on a packaging system level (for example, by having a package "disable-zeroconf" that helps me avoid installation) as well as on a enable/disable level, where I could tell my laptop to not talk to the weirdos hanging out in the airport lounge.
