I'm not sure that means you should just ship the tarball.

I just tried setting up the package normally, without the tarball, but
at the moment It can't be installed on i386 as python-scipy depends on
python-numpy, which depends on libgcc1 (>= 1:4.2-20070208), but that's
not available.

I would personally stick to _not_ shipping the tarball, and just stick
with trying with a nice clean rule.

I notice on their website they offer a Debian package themselves -- have
you asked upstream about their package at all?

Just one more thing: the tarball seems to have version where
your debian/changelog shows 0.6.3-1 -- don't you mean ?

I hope this helps!
