I assume that this would mean having to change the references of to Debian ones in the script, I'll see what I can do but patches are welcome.

adding variables to:
* disable the security repository (for Debian Unstable)
* change the host used for the security repository (to
* which components to use (no universe, restricted, multiverse in debian)
* changing what's appended to BUILD_PKGS (pkg-create-dbgsym and pkgbinarymangler don't exist in Debian)
* which keyring package gets installed (debian-archive-keyring instead of ubuntu-keyring)

okay, that's a lot. more than I thought it would be at first..
maybe just a --debian switch or something that changes all of that? :)

anyway, tomorrow or this weekend I'll make a patch.

The current solution for this is way too much of a special-casing in the script.
