I believe it is being considered for incorporation in unstable (check
the debian-devel archives). I tried linuxconf about three years ago and
it looked promising, but had a long way to go to be really useful. 
I expect it has advanced somewhat since then.

Actually RH suffers from NIH and refuses to incorporate dpkg.
