This is an *excellent* idea, but a terrible way of introducing it.  Why
was it posted only on a blog, and not to -- at least -- debian-devel?

I'm growing increasingly annoyed with things that are announced only on
blogs and not on the Debian developer mailing lists.  (I know it wasn't

It could be useful, I think.  How would one push to it -- over ssh or
with darcs send?

I am using my own private server for this now.  Easier than to have to
deal with all the alioth overhead.
