I agree.

I really love having the debian subdirectory available. It lets me
download bbv2, modify a couple things if desired, build a debian package
and deploy on multiple machines with minimal hassle.

If there was a stable/testing/unstable package for boost-build v2, then
this wouldn't matter as much but for now, it is very much appreciated.
