We could start from one nice implementation and then think what it can become.
To me start from reasonably good template would be a good one.

There is not too much similarity here: 

java-package expect user to download upstream archive and run make-jpkg to 
generate .deb and install generated debs manually (no upgrades).

Others do not build packages...

I'd like to handle upgrades and install only using package management system.
