[plt-scheme] PLT scheme download packages

I'm wondering if there is any possibility of getting PLT scheme versions
made available in the downloads section of the PLT website as *.deb
packages for people like me who use apt-get installers and such.  OS's
such as Ubuntu use these packages and the number of people using them is
growing every day.  Ubuntu 7.10 has a DrScheme package available in the
ubuntu repositories, but it is version 360.  The new release of ubuntu
coming out in April has the 372 package available, which is good,
because for some reason the self-installing script for ubuntu isn't
working for me and I'd like to use 372.  I don't know how much extra
work it would take to do this (If I fully groked the *.deb package
process I'd make one myself.)  But I think it'd be worthwhile.
