As long as Debian maintainers update their packages in a timely manner,
and by and large, they do, I think that's more work than it's worth. I
would imagine that most Debian users just depend on their official
Debian mirrors and wouldn't want to take the time to find, download, and
install an nmh .deb manually.

And if we configure our nmh .deb differently from the way Nick does it,
we'd be doing our users a disservice.
