Hmm, that's not quite true.

Some directory authority operators don't run Debian, so they can't install
Debian packages. (alien might work for some other Linuxes.)

More precisely, the existing bandwidth authorities run on Debian, because
Torflow needs to be patched to run on non-Linux OSes.

sbws 1.0.2 is in Debian.

We've delayed 1.0.3 until we fix some critical sbws bugs that are blocking
deployment on more bandwidth authorities.

Sounds like a good idea.
