Hello,
one possible solution is the quickswitch program 
(http://edgesolutions.ca/article.php?sid=21), which is not deb
packaged yet, however it's really easy to install & config
manually. AFAIR I've read somewhere about a debian-specific way
to accomplish the same thing, however I don't remember where :)
