Man, that rocks!  Me and my colleagues very well might be among your
first users.

Looks like a fine choice to me.  At my work, we've tar-ed up a client
installation and unpack it under /opt/ .

If you're clear about the nature of the intrusive edits you make to
/etc/ stuff in the package description, the installer will be useful to
many.  Imho it will even be useful _before_ you're finished doing
everything as it should be done, with debconf and stuff.
