My own stuff, the bioinformatics library, dependent applications, and
the depended-on libraries, if necessary.

I got criticised (in a review of a draft paper) for my program being
hard to install on Debian, so I thought .deb's would be the way to fix
that :-)

If the software isn't wanted in Debian, I'd be happy to host my own
aptable repo.  We could also set up a common repo for Hackage stuff not
(yet) in Debian - sort of a pre-unstable staging ground.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
