I've started work on a Debian package, but unfortunatly I don't have much spare
time to work on this.  I definitly agree that it would be useful.

See: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=379682

It is up to date.  0.13.1 is still the current stable release.  We're actively
working on a new stable release.  If you like please try the recent beta
