Only if it's removed from SuSE at the same time -- that way I could switch 
from Debian to SuSE. :) 

YaST is horrible because if you use it to configure something, it mangles 
the config files beyond recognition for humans, and you can never use 
anything else -- and even if you do, YaST will screw up your modifications 
next time you run it.

Even more seriously for Debian, I doubt YaST would currently work very
well on all the supported architectures. :)
