Is `.deb' still better than `.rpm'?

Just curious: Are there still advantages to the Debian package
management system over the RPM system?

I originally went with Debian because of the better package system
(and because I like the idea of Debian).  I know someone that is
thinking of getting Redhat 4.0.  I told him my reason for using Debian
(though I believe that Redhat is a good product), but I wonder if my
reason is still true.

By extension, if `.rpm' becomes superior to `.deb', will Debian

Thanks for any comments.
