Although, my development platform is now Ubuntu, I am not yet familiar enough 
with deb packaging to make any direct suggestions, but Eric is our deb expert 
and I see he has already made some suggestions.

I like very much your question and the "let's try to solve the problems" 
attitude behind it.  Are you going to be at FOSSCamp in Dec?  If so, I would 
like to meet you and discuss this in detail.  

A bit later today or possibly tomorrow, I will send you a list (rather big I 
am afraid) of things where we believe we can improve the security and 
usability of Bacula for users.  Some things can be implemented rather easily 
and quickly and others are more long term.

More later ...
