if you do create a package for this, could you distribute your debian.*
files? maybe in a package which contained just the debian.rules etc,
and either a pointer to where to get the source from, or a script to
fetch the source...it would be great if it were possible to make the
build/install process as simple as:
dpkg -i gated-install.deb
## displays message about gated redistribution policy.
dpkg -i ../gated.deb
dpkg -r gated-install.deb
