BTW, I was really excited when getdeb came out about a year ago. I
thought, "wow, here's a way to get the latest versions of apps." 

I was hoping that all these new packages would get MOTUed by João and
find their way into backports, but that hope never became reality.

Then after using getdeb for a while, the packages I was looking for came
into the official repository and I got automatic updates across all my
machines (having five different versions of GNOME References on each of
my machines was a pain).
