You may want to join #debian-ftp on irc.debian.org and discuss with us.
We already have to unpack each and every .deb when we install it into
the archive.

Gathering more data and then writing it wherever accessible is not hard
to do, and usually the better thing to do (after the poc stage) than
having it run elsewhere and redo it all and again. :)
