I've spoken with Jeremy Shaw, who has similar systems in place, based
also on Cabal (and cabal-install), for generating native packages for
Debian & Ubuntu.

However, we do need some Ubuntu champions who can work incrementally,
over a long time, to keep packages up to date on their systems.

Automation makes this a *lot* easier, so you may only need one or two
people, motivated to work on their distro.
