I didn't think he was asking that e17 be added to Ubuntu's repos, just that 
Ubuntu have the dependencies so that their repo could be added as a third 
party repo.  That doesn't sound like too bad of a deal, since the user would 
still have to go out of their way to find the rest of e17.  And it didn't seem 
too unstable when I compiled it on Debian Etch 2 years ago.
