Right it was never the suggestion from Carsten / my side to do that, for
the reasons I mentioned below. It would be nice to one day have a bunch
more debs that people could install. While you can get plugins like
Ftools via the plugin manager, the manager doesnt have any ability to
handle cascading deps, which is probably better handled by package
managers like apt.

+1 from me (but for 1.1 since we are in feature freeze - unless the
needed arrangements are made with Otto & co on the community team).
