Goswin recently offered some help to improve the situation regarding a)
and c) points, but I've seen no (public) answer from you:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2010/04/msg00493.html

Given that you say apt in experimental is semi-working, it would be
interesting to join forces and see if something almost test-able can
be provided.
If so, it would also be useful to advertise it a bit more and hoping to
gain some momentum...

Ciao, Luca
