maemo isn't "great", maemo is a purposefully crippled debian with the  
added benefit to prevent the user from simply using debian armel packages.
imo, the way to go would be to port all of maemo to debian thereby getting  
rid of nokia's imcompatibilities also inside packages (gtk springs to  
mind).
iirc there is/was work going on in that direction.
