I think there's the follow-up question here of "why not improve dgit to
meet our needs?".  That was certainly always what I envisioned happening
when I was sketching out preparatory work for this on the Launchpad
side; I'd already done some initial preparation to get it working for
us; and there are some problems (perhaps not fatal, but not necessarily
trivial) associated with having more than one potential importer, not to
mention the duplicated effort.
