Thanks, this is a good idea! I also want to use this project to gain

Yes, pbuilder with easy selections for different distributions and
architectures is one of the things on the todo list.

http://github.com/alpharesearch/VisualDeb is the address were the
project is hosted. For now I will use the name VisualDeb as long as
there are no objections.
