Personally, just a .deb on Racket's website would be just fine.
A release for apt-get would be awesome, but as you detail, I'm not sure that
is worth the investment, unless you want Racket to be a lot more visible
(e.g., there aren't many things under "Scheme" in Ubuntu's software center,
that would make Racket quite visible).
