that was my first thougth too, which made me test the tool to find it
works just fine in 8.04 (indeed not taking ubuntu security updates into
account that might have fixed the listed debian side issue already) ...
what Florian was concerned about above is that it uses debian server
resources to obtain the list, our userbase is big enough to put an
inconvenient extra amount of bandwith onto their servers if i.e. someone
blogs about the tool on ...

so a server of any kind and someone to take care of it would be needed
for a start, looking at the code some minor changes would be needed to
the defaults to make it point to the ubuntu server instead of the debian
one ...
(and preferably the server sided list should take the USN list into
account instead of the debian list of issues)
